On 15 January 2019, the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) announced six 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 197 substances.
After inviting interested parties to comment on the addition of six potential new SVHCs and a previous released European Commission Decision for identifying of 3-benzylidene camphor** as SVHC, the Member States Committee agreed on including the five potential substances and the EC identified substance to the ECHA Candidate List. Therefore the list now contains 197 substances in total.
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.
