EU REACH SVHC List now contains 224 Substances

eu-reachOn June 10, the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) announced the addition of 1 chemical to the EU REACH Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) Candidate List.

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.

ECHA’s announcement of the additions can be found here. The full SVHC list can be found here.

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.
