REACh Candidatelist now contains 201 SVHCs / Ban on Lead
The ECHA (European Chemicals Agency) candidate list now comprises 201 substances of very high concern (SVHCs) for authorization. In summer (July 16) ECHA had added four new substances:
- 2-methoxyethyl acetate – toxic for reproduction – used i.e. as industrial solvent for resins, oils and various types of rubber – i.e. in paints, for semiconductor production
- TNPP or rather Tris(4-nonylphenyl, branched and linear) phosphite (TNPP) with ≥ 0.1% w/w of 4-nonylphenol, branched and linear (4-NP) - Endocrine disrupting properties – primarily used as an antioxidant to stabilize various polymers (possible spin-off of nonylphenol)
- 2,3,3,3-tetrafluoro-2-(heptafluoropropoxy)propionic acid, its salts and its acyl halides (covering any of their individual isomers and combinations thereof) - Equivalent level of concern having probable serious effects to the environment and human health – used as processing aid in the production of fluorinated polymers and substitute for perfluorooctanoic acid
- 4-tert-butylphenol - Endocrine disrupting properties – employed in coating products, polymers, adhesives, sealants and for the synthesis of other substance
