Also under REACH, the PPORD provisions permit new substances to be manufactured or imported in quantities exceeding 1 metric tonne per year provided the substance will, for example, in the case of coatings, be produced or imported for the purpose of testing the fields of application of the substance, provided a PPORD notification is filed and all downstream users are identified.
To test these alternatives, manufacturers and formulators must not be afraid to use the low volume exemption or PPORD notification provisions of the REACH regulation.
A PPORD exemption may even be granted for common starting materials and reagents, but the global production volumes of those chemicals will usually lead to a separate registration by the manufacturer or importer.
