On 15 January 2018, the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) announced seven new substances will be viewed as Substance of Very High Concern (SVHC) and have been added to the Candidate List under REACH regulation (EC) 1907/2006.   The ECHA Candidate List now contains 181 substances.


Background 

After inviting interested parties to comment on the addition of eight potential new SVHCs, the Member States Committee of the EU agreed on including seven new substances to the ECHA Candidate List. Therefore the list now contains 181 substances in total. Besides that, an additional property, Equivalent level of concern having probable serious effects to environment (Endocrine disrupting properties (Article 57(f) - environment)), has also been added to the previous listed Bisphenol A (BPA).


Once a substance is put on the Candidate List, producers, importers or suppliers may have information obligations if the article contains more than 0.1% of an SVHC. Notification of the ECHA is required as well if the total amount of the specific SVHC exceeds 1 ton/ year.
