ECHA adds eight substances to Candidate List for authorisation
Jun '10
The European Chemicals Agency has added 8 chemical substances to the Candidate List of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) for authorisation. Companies are advised to check their potential obligations that result from this listing.

Following the unanimous agreement of the Member State Committee, ECHA is adding 8 substances on the Candidate List, which now contains 38 substances in total. The 8 substances, which are carcinogenic, mutagenic or reprotoxic (CMR) substances, are listed below. As foreseen by REACH, a specific procedure will be followed to decide whether the substances should also be included in the authorisation list.

Companies may have legal obligations resulting from the inclusion of substances in the List. These obligations can apply to the listed substances on their own as well as in mixtures and in articles. A short summary of the obligations is available on ECHA´s website.
