|Title||The impact of the (draft) EC Authorisation Decision on Downstream Users of Chromium Trioxide|
Late in 2018, the European Commission published the draft decision(1) regarding the CTACSub (upstream) Authorisation Application for several uses of Chromium Trioxide. Although the decision is still draft, it gives a strong indication on what the final decision will look like in terms of review period lengths (4 years for some uses such as “functional chrome plating with decorative character”), the start of the review period and the use conditions.
During the presentation, we will focus on the use conditions of this draft decision and what these mean in practice for the downstream users of Chromium Trioxide, including the timelines for complying with these conditions. Furthermore, we will look at the overall timeline of the CTACSub (upstream) Authorisation Application meaning the review periods per use and when these will start, and more importantly end, and what should be done by then in order to secure the future use of Chromium Trioxide.
