EU: REACH annex XIV authorisation list includes 59 substances

APRIL 2022 - ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONICS, HARDLINES, SOFTLINES, TOY'S AND CHILDREN'S PRODUCTS

On 11 April 2022, the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) published Regulation (EU) No 2022/5861, which amended Annex XIV (Authorisation List) to REACH regulation. This is the 7th update of REACH Annex XIV, and 5 substances were added to the Authorisation List. The total number of substances on Annex XIV increases from 54 to 59.

According to REACH Regulation Article 56, the substances which are listed in Annex XIV cannot be used or placed on the market after the “sunset date”, unless the authorisation is granted. The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) recommends the priority substances to be included in Annex XIV about every two years. These priority substances are chosen from the Candidate List. On 1 October 2019, the ECHA submitted the 9th recommendation of Annex XIV to the European Commission (EC). There was a total of 18 SVHCs included in the recommendation. Finally, only 5 out of 18 SVHCs were included in Annex XIV. 

Table A shows the list of 5 SVHCs which were added into Annex XIV.
