On 19 January 2021, the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) published the 24th update of the REACH Candidate List1. Two (2) new Substances of Very High Concern (SVHCs) were added. Hence, the total number of SVHCs on the Candidate List increases from 209 to 2112.
Both substances which underwent public consultation during September and October of 2020 were identified as SVHCs and included into the Candidate List. Table A lists the SVHCs newly included in the 24th update of the Candidate List.
Besides the legal obligations (i.e. communication and notification) resulting from the inclusion of the SVHCs in the Candidate List, starting from 5 January 2021, companies supply articles with SVHC exceeding 0.1% by weight in the EU market have to submit information to ECHA via SCIP database3. This is a new obligation under Waste Framework Directive.
