EU Member States have proposed a further seven substances to be added to the REACH Candidate List for Substances of Very High Concern (SVHCs). This is due to their CMR (carcinogenic, mutagenic and reproductive toxicity) properties. A public consultation from ECHA, the European Chemicals Agency is underway until 17 October 2013.

The seven substances are:

  • Cadmium sulfide
  • Dihexyl phthalate
  • Disodium 3,3′-[[1,1′-biphenyl]-4,4′-diylbis(azo)]bis(4-aminonaphthalene-1-sulphonate) (C.I. Direct Red 28)
  • Disodium 4-amino-3-[[4′-[(2,4-diaminophenyl)azo][1,1′-biphenyl]-4-yl]azo] -5-hydroxy-6-(phenylazo)naphthalene-2,7-disulphonate (C.I. Direct Black 38)
  • Imidazolidine-2-thione; 2-imidazoline-2-thiol
