AoA by ReachCentrum and ERM among the ECHA good examples of AoA and SEA for REACH Authorisation

The examples illustrate different practices of how applications for authorisation under REACH have been prepared. The analysis, submitted by DOMO Caproleuna GmbH for Trichloroethylene, represents an example of a downstream user analysis of alternatives.

ECHA summarizes the Analysis as follows: … applicant provides a concise summary of substance function based on a series of technical criteria. The assessment of the technical feasibility of alternative substances is then assessed against these criteria. The methodology and data used for the assessment of economic feasibility are set out. Conclusions are linked to the analysis and the applicant makes good use of summary tables.

The list of examples of socio-economic analyses and analyses of alternatives is available from ECHA’s website.

Under REACH Authorisation of chemical substances, Analysis of Alternatives aims to demonstrate that no alternative is appropriate, technically and economically feasible, less risky and available. All applications for Authorisation must include an analysis of alternatives.

Since ReachCentrum’s acquisition in June 2015, ReachCentrum and ERM have combined their technical and management expertise to support industry under REACH Authorisation. Services include Regulatory advice, Strategic planning, Communication facilitation (supply chain, data access), Application for Authorisation and Review of documents, Analysis of Alternatives and Socio Economic Analysis, and  also  setting up interest groups, taskforces and consortia to serve a common goal for Registration and Evaluation, and  Authorisation.

Are you thinking to join our dynamic team?

ReachCentrum assists industries to become compliant with REACH regulation on chemical substances. REACH mandates chemical companies to register their substances manufactured or imported in a joined effort with other potential registrants of the same substance. In order to prepare the necessary communication and decision making processes, companies organize themselves in REACH consortia.
Currently ReachCentrum is managing about 100 consortia and the demand is growing. It is also expected that many companies require support with the 2018 deadline registration.

In this framework, ReachCentrum is looking for:
•    Project Manager – Consortia Manager (regulatory affairs)
•    Senior Project Accountant
•    Project Accountant

Please apply by clicking on each dedicated link. ReachCentrum is looking forward to working with you!


We are now a few weeks away from the third and last REACH registration deadline of May 31, 2018, which covers all phase-in substances manufactured or imported into the EU and between 10 and 100 tonnes per year.

ReachCentrum can help you with your coregistration in four steps. Visit our Coregistration 2018 website to find the services and ask a quote.
