Confirmation of substance additions expected in December and will immediately take effect
Two substances have been proposed to be added to the EU REACH Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) Candidate List.
The substances will be considered by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) during a consultation period, and interested parties may submit comments on the proposed substances during this time. The deadline to submit comments is October 10.
ECHA is expected to announce the final decision about the inclusion of these substances in December, and the inclusion of the substances on the SVHC Candidate List will take immediate effect at that time.
The two substances proposed for inclusion are:
|Name||EC Number||CAS Number||Reason for proposing||Details|

GreenSoft can help with EU REACH compliance
The EU REACH SVHC List is typically updated twice per year, resulting in affected companies needing to re-evaluate their product compliance and possibly re-collect substance data from their suppliers.
GreenSoft helps manage this process for companies, including coverage for the EU REACH SCIP Database, by performing data collection, data validation, substance calculations and report generation as part of our EU REACH data services.
