The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) published new proposals to identify 10 chemicals as Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) on 1 September and is seeking comments on new substances proposed to be included in the Candidate List. The detailed proposals are available on the ECHA website per clicking the link at the end of this press release. Of the ten SVHC proposals, Germany has put forward two resubmissions from the nitrogen containing heterocycles group due to being persistent, bioaccumulative, and/or toxic;Denmark has put forward four phthalates, which it says are endocrine disruptors. Interested parties are invited to comment on the proposals by 16 October 2014.
