ECHA Confirms New Additions to SVHC List
The European chemicals agency (ECHA) has added eight new entries to The Candidate List of Substances of Very High Concern under the REACH legislation.
Substances are included in the Candidate List whilst undergoing an evaluation as to whether they will be added to the Annex XIV authorisation list which effectively restricts their use and manufacture in the EU for non-authorised uses.
There are currently 219 entries in the Candidate List of which 54 have been placed on the Authorisation List.
