Authorisation provides a regulatory context for substitution. Substitution is a complex process and should be based on risk. Substitution should be goalorientated rather than prescriptive. Comparative risk assessment provides data for substitution decisions. Stakeholders should be consulted when developing substitution criteria. Risk profiles should be developed for candidate substitutes.
Experts should summarise the risk profiles of candidate substitutes for evaluation according to agreed criteria. Selection of substitutes for specific uses will require value judgements based on comparative risk evaluation and stakeholder input.
