EU – Two SVHCs Added to REACH Candidate List

On January 19, 2021, ECHA added two new SVHCs to the REACH Candidate List[1].  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.

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)ether205-594-7143-24-8Solvent 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).
