You will require this authorisation if you intend to introduce an industrial chemical for the purpose of ascertaining its potential for commercial application. Sufficient evidence must be provided detailing why you require the product, how long the trials will last and the amount of product required. The maximum amount of product allowed is ten tonnes and the authorisation is valid up to four years, though any lesser time or amount will be considered. You cannot sell your chemical or make it available to the general public during the CEA period unless it is part of an article.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
