What substance has been added to the Candidate List?

ECHA, on request of the European Commission or a Member State, may propose a substance to be identified as of very high concern (SVHC). If the substance is identified as such, it will be added to the Candidate List for its eventual inclusion in the authorisation list (REACH Annex XIV). The inclusion of a substance in the Candidate List creates law obligations for the companies producing, importing or using these substances as such, in preparations or in articles.

On June 14th 2023, the following substances have been added to the Candidate List:

  • Diphenyl(2,4,6-trimethylbenzoyl)phosphine oxide (CAS 75980-60-8, EC 278-355-8) for its toxicity for reproduction (Article 57c)
  • Bis(4-chlorophenyl) sulphone (CAS 80-07-9, EC 201-247-9) for its vPvB properties (Article 57e)

Trace One has already prepared the analysis in order to provide these data for its suites.
