Annex XIV inclusion recommendation
ECHA recommended the inclusion of 18 substances of very high concern to the Authorisation List, also known as Annex XIV of REACH regulation. It is ECHA's ninth recommendation to the European Commission.
Some of these substances are not currently used in theEuropean Union but they could be used as substitutes for other substances recommended for the Authorisation List. ECHA wishes to avoir these regrettable substitutions by including them as well to Annex XIV. The final decision now lies with the European Commission in collaboration with the Member States and the European Parliament.
The substances ECHA reccomends for inclusion to the Authorisation list and their SVHC properties (substances of very high concern) are as follow:
