After inviting interested parties to comment on the addition of potential new SVHC, the Member States Committee of the EU agreed on including four new substances to the ECHA Candidate List due to the toxic to reproduction, persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic (PBT) and equivalent level of concern having probable serious effects to environment properties of the substances. Therefore the list now contains 173 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.
