EU – Undecafluorohexanoic acid Withdrawn as SVHC Candidate

On December 13, 2018, the substance Undecafluorohexanoic acid and its ammonium salt (CAS no 307-24-4) was withdrawn from consideration as a Candidate List SVHC.  The Validation Team for IEC 62474 had already determined that Undecafluorohexanoic acid has potential uses in EEE and the substance would have been added to the IEC Declarable Substances List if the substance were added to the Candidate List.

Given the withdrawal, Undecafluorohexanoic acid will not be added to the IEC 62474 DSL at this time. For additional information on IEC 62474, see the blog at
