New candidate substances lead to a wider scope of obligations for the suppliers of articles. Information obligations, according to article 33 REACH, have to be fulfilled if an article contains more than 0,1 mass% of a candidate substance.

In addition, notification of svhc according to article 7 REACH may apply on manufacturers or importers of articles if a svhc is present above 0,1 mass% and in a total > 1 ton/year and exposure of the svhc (including disposal) cannot be excluded . After a new substance is added to the candidate list, companies have a 6 months period of time for submitting the notification to the European Chemicals Agency.
