Agentur Lorenzoni News Details

Published by by Beate Lorenzoni

FBDi refers to duty to inform

In January, ECHA (European Chemicals Agency) added four new substances to its candidate list, bringing the candidate list to 223 substances of very high concern (SVHC) that are candidates for authorization. The newly added substances are:
  • 6,6'-Di-tert-butyl-2,2'-methylendi-p-cresol – toxic for reproduction – use in i.e. Rubbers, lubricants, adhesives, inks, fuels
  • Tris(2-methoxyethoxy)vinylsilan - toxic for reproduction – use in i.e. Rubbers, plastics, sealants
  • (±)-1,7,7-Trimethyl-3-[(4-methylphenyl)methylen]bicyclo[2.2.1]heptan-2-on - Endocrine disrupting properties (Article 57 f - human health) – use in cosmetic
  • S-(Tricyclo(,6)deca-3-en-8(oder 9)-yl-O-(isopropyl oder isobutyl oder 2-ethylhexyl)-O-(isopropyl oder isobutyl oder 2-ethylhexyl)phosphordithioat – PBT (Article 57 d) – use in i.e. lubricants, greases
In this context, the FBDi explicitly refers to the obligation for companies to use these chemicals safely and to provide information immediately in connection with the substances included in the candidate list: If an article (an article is considered to be each individual component of a product and not only the final product) contains more than 0.1 mass percent of a SVHC included in the candidate list, companies within the EU must provide their professional customers with sufficient information on the safe use of this article, but at least indicate the name of the substance contained (Art. 33 (1) of the REACh Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006).
In addition, since January 2021, companies have to report products containing SVHCs to the SCIP database of ECHA.
