You will need this authorisation if you intend to use, handle or store a prohibited or restricted carcinogen. Exposure to carcinogens may have serious health-related consequences if adequate measures are not in place.
Restricted and prohibited carcinogens are listed in Schedule 10 of the Regulation. If you have provided notification of continuing work with a carcinogen in accordance with the requirements within the last five years, you will not require this authorisation until the five years expire.
Please note that prohibited carcinogens can only be used, handled or stored for genuine research or analysis.
