New public consultation on eight potential SVHC
09
Mar '10
The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has published proposals to identify eight chemicals as Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) and possible candidates for authorisation. The detailed proposals are available on the ECHA website. Interested parties are invited to comment on the eight proposals by 22 April 2010.

Three EU Member States – Denmark, France and Germany - have put forward proposals to identify eight chemical substances as Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC). Anyone can comment on these eight proposals within the next 45 days. Comments should focus primarily on the hazardous properties that qualify the chemicals as SVHCs. In addition, interested parties can provide comments and further information on the uses, exposures and availability of safer alternative substances or techniques. They should be aware that these aspects will mainly be considered at the next stage of the process (i.e. selection of substances for authorisation), which includes a new round of public consultation.

The Member State Committee will review these comments when seeking an agreement on the identification as SVHC before ECHA includes these substances on the Candidate List, from which substances are selected for authorisation. Substances that appear on the Authorisation List can, after a transition period, only be used if a specific authorisation is granted.

There are already 29 substances on the Candidate List. Inclusion on that list means new information requirements for suppliers of preparations and articles containing the substances.

All eight substances are proposed because of their potentially serious effects on human health. They are carcinogenic, mutagenic and/or toxic for reproduction. The names of the substances, the reasons for their proposal as SVHC and their potential uses are provided in the attached table.

Names of the substances proposed for identification as Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC), reasons for their proposal, and their potential uses according to information provided in the Annex XV dossiers submitted by EU Member States.
