Opinions of the Member State Committee

When the Member State Committee (MSC) does not reach a unanimous agreement on an Annex XV dossier proposing a substance to be identified as an SVHC, the MSC must provide its opinion, consisting of the position of the majority of its members, including its grounds, in order for the Commission to draft a proposal on the identification of the substance.

The minority position expressed by disagreeing MSC members, including their grounds, is published in a separate document at the same time as the opinion. An MSC opinion and the minority position have been sent to the European Commission for further decision making.
