We are pleased to introduce our latest newsletter which informs you about any ongoing changes in the process of identification of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC).

The deadline for submitting substance in article notifications for four substances of very high concern added to the Candidate List on 12 January 2017 is 12 July 2017.

ECHA has released their second video focusing on the second step for successful registration: finding your co-registrants.

The Member State Committee (MSC) supported the French proposal to additionally identify Bisphenol A as a substance of very high concern because of its endocrine disrupting properties which cause probable serious effects to human health. The Committee also agreed to identify the substance PFHxS as an SVHC.

ECHA has updated its support page on applications for authorisation. It now contains updated formats for applications and review reports.

The consolidated opinions of the Committee for Risk Assessment (RAC) and Socio-economic Analysis (SEAC) for uses of the three substances are available on the ECHA website.
