- Excerpt from European Chemicals Agency consults on 54 proposals for Substances of Very High Concern:

On 3 September, the European Agency opened a consultation on 54 chemicals that could be classified as substances of very high concern (SVHCs) on the REACH candidate list by the end of the year. The list of substances includes acetic acid, 21 lead compounds, the flame retardant deca-BDE, a series of perfluorinated acids, the phthalates n-pentyl-isopentylphthalate and diisopentylphthalate, and several azo dyes. Substances on the candidate list are subject to extra information requirements. They will also be considered for addition to the REACH authorisation list.
