Nine new substances added to the Authorisation List
On 19 August, the Commission added nine new substances on the Authorisation List (Annex XIV) of the REACH Regulation. These substances of very high concern had been prioritised by ECHA in January 2013 and are used, for instance, as solvents, anti-corrosion or curing agents.
The latest application dates range from February 2016 to July 2017. The Authorisation List currently contains a total of 31 substances.
One new intention for the substance Momfluorothrin is added to the Registry of Intentions. Seven intentions for borate substances are withdrawn by Poland. The withdrawn substances are: diboron trioxide, disodium tetraborate, tetraboron disodium heptaoxide, orthoboric acid, disodium tetraborate decahydrate, disodium tetraborate pentahydrate and boric acid, crude natural.
The Registry is also updated with five new submissions: metaldehyde (submitted again after it was withdrawn last year in order to include new studies), methylhydrazine, d-tetramethrin, tetramethrin and anthraquinone.
