Public consultation on 20 potential substances of very high concern

The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has published proposals to identify 20 chemicals as Substances of Very High Concern (SVHCs) and thus as possible candidates for authorisation. From the last publication six months ago, the number of dossiers has more than doubled. The detailed proposals are available on the ECHA website. Interested parties are invited to comment on the proposals by 13 October 2011.

Several Member States and ECHA (at the request of the European Commission) have put forward proposals to identify 20 chemical substances as Substances of Very High Concern (SVHCs). Anyone can comment on these proposals within the next 45 days. The names of the substances, the reasons for their proposal as SVHC and their uses are provided in the attached table.
