After inviting interested parties to comment on the addition of four potential new SVHCs, the Member States Committee agreed on including the four potential substances to the ECHA Candidate List. Therefore the list now contains 205 substances in total.

Once a substance is put on the Candidate List, producers, importers or suppliers may have information obligations if the article contains more than 0.1% of an SVHC. Notification of the ECHA is required as well if the total amount of the specific SVHC exceeds 1 ton/ year.
