In order to promote innovation, Article 9 of REACH specifies that substances manufactured or imported on their own or in preparation, as well as substances incorporated in articles or imported in articles for the purpose of product and process oriented research and development (PPORD) can be exempted from the duty to register for a period of 5 years. To be exempted a company needs to submit a PPORD notification to the Agency.
The exemption from registration for the purpose of PPORD applies provided that the manufacturer, the importer or the producer of the articles carries out the PPORD by himself or in cooperation with listed customers. The Regulation does not impose a limit on the quantities of the substance to be manufactured, imported, incorporated in articles or imported in articles, provided the quantities are limited to the purpose of PPORD. On receipt of the notification, the ECHA may choose to request further information or impose additional conditions.
The PPORD notification dossier will be prepared in IUCLID5, and submitted electronically using the REACH IT portal of the ECHA (European Chemicals Agency).
