~tEU Commission adopts additions to REACH authorisation list

The European Commission has adopted its Regulation to add 12 SVHCs to Annex XIV – the REACH authorisation list.

The draft regulation for their inclusion was published in February last year. Their addition to the authorisation list increases the number of substances in the Annex from 43 to 55.

Of the 12, six substances or substance groups are toxic for reproduction category 1B.

Four others are persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic (PBT), and/or very persistent and very bioaccumulative (vPvB), and one is vPVB only. And one substance is a respiratory sensitiser category 1.

Existing transitional arrangements should be extended for some substances for uses in spare parts and repair of articles and complex products produced before the ban comes into place, the Commission says.

The Regulation was published in the EU’s Official Journal on 7 February. It will enter into force after 20 days.
