3 Sep. 2021, ECHA has released a proposal for eight chemical substances to be identified as Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC). Member States or ECHA, on request of the European Commission, may propose a substance to be identified as an SVHC by preparing a dossier in accordance with the requirements set out in Annex XV to REACH. All interested parties are invited to submit comments on such reports during the consultation. The proposal is now under public consultation and deadline for consultation is 18 Oct. 2021.

Once these substances are identified as SVHCs, they will be added into the Candidate List of SVHCs, which currently contain 219 substances.
