The Swedish NGO ChemSec has published version 2.1 of its SIN (Substitute It Now) List.
249 substances have been added to this new version of the SIN List giving a total number of 626 chemicals now listed. The new additions are highly hazardous chemicals in use in a wide range of everyday consumer products, posing a threat to the health of people in Europe and elsewhere, as well as to the environment. They are carcinogenic, mutagenic or toxic to reproduction, and ChemSec believe that they should be regulated in the EU. There are currently 138 substances on the REACH Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) list.
