IEC 62474 Declarable Substances List Update – January 2019

The IEC 62474 Declarable Substance List (DSL) was updated to Version D17.00 on January 15, 2019. The update includes relevant SVHCs from the January 15 update to the EU REACH Candidate List.

Declarable Substance List (DSL)
Five of the six SVHCs added to the Candidate List were also added to the IEC 62474 DSL based on their potential presence in EEE products. The substance review for possible EEE uses was conducted by the IEC 62474 Validation Team (VT62474) with experts from Asia, Americas, and Europe. Note: if anyone is aware of information that may be relevant to whether or not one of the substances may be present in EEE products, please forward the information to the VT (by sending an email to iec62474(at)

The additions to the DSL are listed in Table below.

Reference Substances List (RSL)

No changes were made to the reference substance List during this update

Material Class List (MCL)
No changes were made to the MCL during this update to the IEC 62474 database. However, a major revision to the Material Class List is currently underway — the changes will better support Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of EEE products.

Upcoming Major Changes to the IEC 62474 Database
The IEC 62474 standard was due for its periodic review (like any other IEC standard). The standard was revised based on feedback from stakeholders and IEC 62474 Ed.2 was published in November 2018 and is currently available from IEC webstore and standards resellers.
