Q:  About Consequences of the Candidate List

A: Under REACH, companies have legal obligations when their substance is included-either on its own, in mixtures or in articles-in the Candidate List.

Suppliers of articles containing a Candidate List substance above a concentration of 0.1 % (weight by weight) have to give their customers and consumers enough information to be able to use them safely. Consumers have the right to ask suppliers whether the products they buy contain substances of very high concern.

Importers and producers of articles will have to notify ECHA if their article contains N-(hydroxymethyl)acrylamide within six months from the date it has been included in the list-10 June 2022. Suppliers of substances on the Candidate List, supplied either on their own or in mixtures, have to provide their customers with a safety data sheet.

Under the Waste Framework Directive, companies also have to notify ECHA if the articles they produce contain substances of very high concern in a concentration above 0.1 % (weight by weight). This notification is published in ECHA’s database of substances of concern in products (SCIP).

CTT Reminder:

With the increasingly strict regulatory control of the EU, clients with relevant products exported to Europe should pay timely attention to the regulatory dynamics and meet the regulatory test requirements, so as to reduce the export risk and successfully complete the transaction.
