The European Chemical Agency has launched a new public consultation concerning four potential SVHC. Stakeholders can provide comments on these proposed SVHC until 18 October 2021. Comments will be taken into account when deciding whether the substances will be added to the ECHA Candidate List of SVHC.
On 3 September 2021, the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) published four new potential Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) candidates (see table). After preparing dossiers for the substances, the ECHA has now invited interested parties to a public consultation in which they can provide comments within a timeframe of 45 days (until 18 October 2021).
A decision will be made as to whether the substances will be included to the ECHA Candidate List of SVHC after the consultation.
