Notification under the CLP Regulation means that manufacturers and importers submit certain classification and labelling information of substances they are placing on the
market to the Classification & Labelling Inventory held by ECHA.
Notification under the CLP Regulation applies to all hazardous substances irrespectively of the volume placed on the market, and to all non-hazardous substances subject to registration under REACH.
The substances that qualify for consideration for authorisation are known as Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC).
Substances to which authorisation applies are listed in Annex XIV of REACH. For each substance included on Annex XIV, a deadline is set after which use of that substance in the EU must stop (known as the 'sunset date'), unless Authorised.
Substances must be notified within one month from being placed on the market.
