ECHA proposes seven substances for authorisation to protect people and the environment

The ECHA’s tenth recommendation has just been published and seven substances of very high concern (SVHCs) are recommended to be added to the REACH Authorisation List.

ECHA recommends for the European Commission to add seven substances, including the cyclosiloxanes D4, D5 and D6, to the Authorisation List. The final decision to include these substances of very high concern (SVHCs) in the Authorisation List will be taken by the European Commission together with the EU Member States and the European Parliament. These decisions will also indicate the dates by when companies will need to apply to ECHA for authorisation to continue using the substances.
