ECHA wishes to recognize the complexity of interactions between the many manufacturing levels and the numerous competitors in this strategic industry sector. The report is important for the aviation industry because REACH authorisation is considered as a "mission-critical" process. The reasons are mainly due to the regulatory controls associated with the introduction of alternative chemicals; the industry's dependence on certain substances of very high concern (SVHC), the relatively small volumes of SVHCs in use and the complexity of its supply chain. Answers developed may be applied to other industries as well, though the analysis is based on the specific case of the aviation industry.
