If an EU authorisation, referenced in Switzerland in the context of Annex 1.17 Number 2 para 2, were revoked by ECHA, how would Swiss users be informed of this?

In this regard, the user of the substance shall also assume direct responsibility. Fundamentally, it is unlikely that an authorisation granted by the European Commission would be revoked before the expiry of the defined term. If, contrary to expectations, this situation were nevertheless to occur, the company concerned in Switzerland could, on the basis of Annex 1.17 Number 2 para 6, submit no later than 3 months after an EU-approval had been revoked, an application to the Notification Authority for Chemicals for the grant of an exemption.
