The seven new substances identified as SVHCs are: 2-ethoxyethylacetate, strontium chromate, 1,2-Benzenedicarboxylic acid, di-C7-11 branched and linear alkyl esters (DHNUP), hydrazine, 1-methyl-2-pyrrolidone, 1,2,3-trichloropropane, 1,2-benzenedicarboxylic acid, di-C6-8-branched alkyl esters, C7-rich (DIHP). These substances are either carcinogenic, mutagenic or reprotoxic (CMR) substances. DHNUP and DIHP will complement the Candidate List with two additional phthalates.
In addition, as a result of the procedure for identification as SVHC a new identification basis (toxic for reproduction) will be added for cobaltdichloride that is already on the Candidate List because of its carcinogenic hazards.
The Candidate List will be updated soon as the seven new substances and the “toxic for reproduction” will be added as the basis for identification as an SVHC for cobaltdichloride .
