EU REACH SVHC List now contains 224 Substances
N-(hydroxymethyl)acrylamide (EC No. 213-103-2; CAS No. 924-42-5) has been added to the EU REACH SVHC Candidate List as it may cause cancer or genetic defects. It is mostly used in polymers and when manufacturing other chemicals, textiles, leather or fur. It is not likely to be present in electrical or electronic products.
The EU REACH SVHC Candidate List now has 224 entries, though some entries are groups of chemicals so the overall number of impacted chemicals is higher. The last prior addition to the SVHC list was SVHC-223 in January 2022.
The inclusion of substances in the EU REACH SVHC List brings immediate obligations for affected companies using the substances in their products above the stated threshold, including customer notifications and notifying ECHA through submissions to the SCIP Database.
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 SCIP Database, by performing data collection, data validation, substance calculations and report generation as part of our EU REACH data services.
