ECHA is proposing for public comment more candidate SVHC (Substances of Very High Concern) under REACH. These do not trigger the Candidate List requirements – yet. See the list here.
More arsenic, lead and chromate compounds. Ethylene dichloride. Diglyme, CAS 111-96-6, which has stirred EPA attention recently (proposed SNUR). Most interesting is the first identified as “equivalent level of concern” because it is an endocrine disruptor and not the standard carcinogen, reproductive toxin, mutagen (4-tert-octylphenol). Expect to see lots more EDCs (endocrine disrupting chemicals).
ECHA will keep adding to the Candidate List SVHC, making compliance an ongoing challenge for products and their raw materials. Need help? Contact EHS Strategies, Inc.
