On January 19, 2021, ECHA added two new SVHCs to the REACH Candidate List. The newly added SVHCs are listed in Table 1. Three references substances were identified by ECHA for the substance group “Dioctyltin dilaurate, …”; these are show as a bulleted list under the substance group name in the table.
Table 1: Two SVHCs added to REACH Candidate List
|Substance name||Description||EC No.||CAS No.||Typical EEE Applications|
|Dioctyltin dilaurate, stannane, dioctyl-, bis(coco acyloxy) derivs., and any other stannane, dioctyl-, bis(fatty acyloxy) derivs. wherein C12 is the predominant carbon number of the fatty acyloxy moiety|
· dioctyltin dilaurate; stannane, dioctyl-, bis(coco acyloxy) derivs.
· Stannane, dioctyl-, bis(coco acyloxy) derivs.
· Dioctyltin dilaurate
|Stabilisers and catalysts in the production of e.g. plastics and rubber. Used for the manufacture of the follow article categories: plastic products, fabrics, textiles, apparel, and leather. Professional application of coatings and inks.|
|Bis(2-(2-methoxyethoxy)ethyl)ether||205-594-7||143-24-8||Solvent in electrolyte in lithium-ion batteries, solvent in other manufacturing process (example: solder flux).|
The IEC 62474 Validation Team (VT62474) reviewed and concluded that both substances are potential constituents of materials in electrical and electronic equipment (EEE).
