EU REACH: Eight Substances Added to Authorisation List
Recently, the European Commission has published the 2nd amendment of the REACH Regulation (EC No. 1907/2006) Authorisation list. After the initial recommendation of the European Chemical Agency (ECHA), the commission has officially added the 8 recommended Substances of Very High Concern (SVHCs) in the list (Annex XIV) for REACH. These 8 chemicals are all carcinogenic and/or toxic for reproduction. With this update, Annex XIV has been expanded to a total of 14 SVHCs.
According to the draft Commission Regulation, after the date specified for each substance ("sunset date"), the placing on the market and the use of those substances in the EU will only be possible for those operators who have been granted an authorisation in accordance with Articles 60-64 of REACH and for those who have submitted an application for authorisation before a given date ("latest application date").
