The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has called for comments regarding possible new Substances of very high concern (SVHC), one of which is BPA. 

Interested parties can give comments on uses, alternatives and possible risks of these substances and check available information via the published report acc. to Annex XV of the REACH regulation.

After consultation, a decision will be made as to whether these substances will be added to the ECHA Candidate List. Once on the Candidate List, producers, suppliers, importers and retailers must provide business clients directly, and consumers upon request, with information on the presence and safe use of any product containing the SVHC that exceeds 0.1% (w/w). In case the total amount of an SVHC exceeds 1 t per actor per year for all products, this SVHC also has to be notified to the ECHA.
