ECHAOn 6 February 2013 The Council of the European Union released a Roadmap on Substances of Very High Concern. In it, the ECHA and the European Commission agreed to have all currently known SVHCs included in the Candidate List by 2020.

“The Commission made a preliminary, worst case estimation of 440 substances to be RMO assessed between 2013 and 2020. This would require developing around 55 RMOs per year. In the years from middle 2009/end 2012, RMOs for around 160 substances have been prepared by ECHA and MS and 138 substances have been included in the Candidate List. A mid-tem objective is that around 80 substances, in addition to the substances already assessed and/or listed today in the candidate list, will be subject to a RMO by the end of 2014.”
