Effective June 18, 2010, the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has added another eight substances to the candidate list of substances of very high concern (svhc) after the committee of the member states of the European Union had taken a respective decision a few days before, June 14, 2010. The substances are the following:  

 • Trichloroethylene: CAS No. 201-167-4
 • Boric acid: CAS No. 233-139-2, 234-343-4
 • Disodium tetraborate, anhydrous: CAS No. 215-540-4
 • Tetraboron disodium heptaoxide, hydrate: CAS No. 235-541-3
 • Sodium chromate: CAS No. 231-889-5
 • Potassium chromate: CAS No. 232-140-5
 • Ammonium dichromate: CAS No. 232-143-1
 • Potassium dichromate: CAS No. 231-906-6

This has direct impact on suppliers of articles containing those substances in a concentration higher than 0.1 mass%. They are subject to information obligations according to art. 33 REACH regulation. The candidate list now defines 38 substances. The list is available (including background information) on the following webpage of ECHA: http://echa.europa.eu/chem_data/authorisation_process/candidate_list_table_en.asp
