The REACH SVHC Candidate List is updated by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) from time to time. On 15 June 2015, ECHA added two new substances to the Candidate List (Table 1). The Candidate List now contains 163 substances. The new 163 Candidate List is in effect immediately.

According to the REACH Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, manufacturer of article containing >0.1% (w/w) of SVHC in the Candidate List shall communicate related information down the supplier chain. Manufacturers also have the obligation to provide consumers information about any SVHC in products, within 45 days, upon consumers’ request. Test report as a proof for SVHC content is usually included as a buyer requirement for articles to be imported to EU.
