Five new substances have been identified as SVHC by European Chemicals Agency (ECHA)

European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has included 5 new substances (and updated 1 entry) to the Candidate List of substances of very high concern (SVHC) for Authorisation under REACH.

It includes substances mainly used in the coatings industry and in production of inks. 

Due to the scope of REACH this will affect the producers/suppliers of substances, mixtures and even articles

In practice, the presence of listed substances in percentage above 0,1 % w/w, will lead to further requirements for the suppliers. This may include communication down the supply chain or even SCIP notifications for affected articles.

For example, suppliers of mixtures containing Bumetrizole (an UV absorber) would have to notify their buyers, if the mixture contains > 0,1 % w/w of this substance (or any other SVHC).

You can find a summarised table of substances added to the Candidate list: 

# Substance name EC number CAS number


211-989-5 732-26-3


221-573-5 3147-75-9
3 2-(dimethylamino)-2-[(4-methylphenyl)methyl]-1-[4-(morpholin-4-yl)phenyl]butan-1-one 438-340-0 119344-86-4
