ECHA – Substances

On 27 June 2018  ECHA  added eight new SVHCs to the Candidate List following the SVHC identification process with the involvement of the Member State Committee .

Two further substances, TMA and DCHP, have also been added to the list, having been identified as SVHCs by the European Commission due to their respiratory sensitising properties and toxic for reproduction and endocrine-disrupting properties, respectively. The Commission’s decision follows the referral of the MSC opinions on these SVHC proposals in 2016. A short summary of the obligations is available on ECHA´s website Click Here.

The Chemdoc application has this information available in a new report for the SVHC list of substances. The report is accessible through the substance tab on Chemdoc
