ECHA has added nine new substances to the Candidate List of substances of very high concern (SVHC) under EU REACH, taking the total number of entries to the EU Candidate List to 233.

Examples of given uses of the newly designated SVHC included uses in paints & coatings, in polymers & resins, adhesives & sealants, flame retardants, and plasticiser. One substance included was not registered under REACH (indicating low volumes of EU usage) but was identified as SVHC to prevent potential regrettable substitution in the future.

 More information on the nine substances and their uses can be found in the related article on the ECHA website
