The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) published proposals identifying seven additional substances as Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) and possible candidates for authorization. Interested parties are invited to comment on these proposals by 7 April 2011.

Once on the List, producers, importers or suppliers may have communication obligations (as per Article 33 of REACH regulation) that require them to provide business clients and consumers with information on the safe use of any product containing the SVHC that exceeds 0.1% (w/w).
