During the ECHA EU Member State Committee meeting in December 2021, 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:
- 2-(4-tert-butylbenzyl) propionaldehyde;
- 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.
