ECHA has updated information on the Candidate List substances in articles for consumer use

On 11 November 2014, the non-confidential information on the Candidate List substances in articles has been updated. This update includes information from the 328 notifications and from registration dossiers received by ECHA until 23 September 2014, for substances included in the Candidate List on 16 December 2013 and earlier. This consists of examples of articles containing those substances, which can be available for consumer use on the EU market. Under certain conditions, importers and producers of articles have to submit notifications of substances of very high concern (SVHCs) in articles to ECHA, no later than six months after the inclusion of the substance in the Candidate List.
