EU – ECHA Proposes Lead for REACH Annex XIV Authorization List

During the ECHA EU Member State Committee meeting in December 2021[1], ECHA discussed its recommendation for additions to the REACH Annex XIV Authorization List.  ECHA has proposed 8 substances for this draft 11th Annex XIV recommendation.  The substances include:

  • Ethylenediamine;
  • 2-(4-tert-butylbenzyl) propionaldehyde;
  • Lead;
  • Glutaral;
  • 2-methyl-1-(4-methylthiophenyl)-2-morpholinopropan-1-one;
  • 2-benzyl-2-dimethylamino-4′-morpholinobutyrophenone;
  • Diisohexyl phthalate and
  • Orthoboric acid, sodium salt

Particularly notable is the proposal to add ‘Lead’ metal to Annex XIV.

The next step in finalizing the Annex XIV recommendation is for ECHA to conduct a 3-month stakeholder consultation on the draft list.
