Six substances of very high concern added to Candidate List

23 December 2014

Cadmium fluoride, cadmium sulphate and four other substances are added to the Candidate List. The Member State Committee also agreed that bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) meets the criteria for identification as an SVHC under Article 57(f) due to its endocrine disrupting properties. As DEHP is already included in the Candidate List based on its toxic for reproduction properties, this entry will be updated to address the additional reason for inclusion. Information on the notification of substances in articles and related submission tools, as well as a manual with instructions on how to submit a notification dossier are available on ECHA's website (ECHA Press Release, 17 December 2014).
