Updates to EU Reach SVHC Candidate List
Updates to EU Reach SVHC Candidate List
Five substances have been proposed to be added to the EU REACH Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) Candidate List.
The substances will be considered by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) during the consultation period, and interested parties may submit comments on the proposed substances during this time. The deadline to submit comments is April 17.
ECHA is expected to announce the final decision about the inclusion of these substances in June, and the inclusion of the substances on the SVHC Candidate List will take immediate effect at that time.
The five substances proposed for inclusion are:
|Name||EC Number||CAS Number||Reason for Proposing||Details|
|1-vinylimidazole||214-012-0||1072-63-5||Toxic for reproduction (Article 57c)||Link|
|2-methylimidazole||211-765-7||693-98-1||Toxic for reproduction (Article 57c)||Link|
|Butyl 4-hydroxybenzoate||202-318-7||94-26-8||Endocrine disrupting properties (Article 57(f) – human health)||Link|
|Dibutylbis(pentane-2,4-dionato-O,O')tin||245-152-0||22673-19-4||Toxic for reproduction (Article 57c)||Link|
|Resorcinol||203-585-2||108-46-3||Endocrine disrupting properties (Article 57(f) – human health)||Link|
ECHA’s announcement of these proposed additions can be found online. The last prior addition to the EU REACH SVHC list was in January.
EU REACH SCIP Database will require additional information on SVHCs from manufacturers
These proposed substance additions come while ECHA is in the midst of testing out the new EU REACH SCIP Database portal, which manufacturers will need to use to submit SVHC information starting next January.
Beginning January 5, 2021, producers and importers of articles in the EU will be required to provide detailed information on the presence of SVHCs higher than 0.1% weight-by-weight within their products, including:
- Information that allows the article to be identified
- The name, concentration range, and location of the SVHC in the article
- Information on the safe use of the article, including during disposal
- Material Category of the material containing the SVHC

GreenSoft can help with EU REACH compliance
The EU REACH SVHC List is typically updated twice per year, resulting in affected companies needing to re-evaluate their product compliance and possibly re-collect substance data from their suppliers.
GreenSoft helps manage this process for companies, including coverage for the EU REACH SCIP Database, by performing data collection, data validation, substance calculations and report generation as part of our EU REACH data services.
