A notification is valid unlimitedly, a permit in contrast is valid for a maximum of 5 years.
According to the technical regulation, a uniform chemical register with the data on the chemical substances placed on the market is to be provided. The registration in the list of chemicals is a prerequisite for the issue of proof of conformity.
