Nine new substances were added to the Authorisation List (Annex XIV) of the REACH Regulation on August 19, 2014. These Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) had been prioritised by ECHA in January 2013 and are used, for instance, as solvents, anti-corrosion or curing agents.
The sunset dates range from August 22, 2017 to January 22, 2019. If manufacturers want to use one of the newly added substances after the sunset date, they have to apply for an authorization 18 months before the respective sunset date.
With these nine new entries, the Authorisation List currently contains a total of 31 Substances of Very High Concern.
