The European Chemicals Agency, ECHA, has announced that a further seven chemicals have been added to the candidate list of substances of very high concern (SVHCs) to be potentially restricted under the REACH regulations.
The seven chemicals are:
- Cadmium sulfide
- 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)
- Dihexyl phthalate
- Imidazolidine-2-thione (2-imidazoline-2-thiol)
- Lead di-acetate
- Trixylyl phosphate
The proposed restriction applies to the chemicals themselves plus articles containing them at a concentration above 0.1%, if traded in sufficient quantity.
