The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) is proposing to add 11 new substances in the EU REACH Authorization List.
The proposed new substances include:
- HHPA and MHHPA
- Dihexyl phthalate and 1,2-benzenedicarboxylic acid, dihexyl ester, branched and linear
- Boron compounds: sodium perborate, perboric acid, sodium salt and sodium peroxometaborate
- Trixylyl phosphate
- Lead compounds: orange lead, lead monoxide, tetralead trioxide sulphate and pentalead tetraoxide sulphate
Comments by interested parties can be given until February 18, 2016.
Substances that are subject to authorization under REACH may not be manufactured or used in the EU unless the specific use has been authorized to a company that applies for authorization, and has been authorized to do so. Authorization can be extended to an immediate supplier and to downstream users who source the chemical from this company.
