Candidate List of Substances of Very High Concern for Authorisation

The identification of a substance as Substance of Very High Concern and its inclusion in the Candidate List is the first step of the authorisation procedure. 

Companies may have immediate legal obligations following such inclusion which are linked to the listed substance on its own, in preparations and articles.

Further documentation or more detailed information on the identification process of substances of very high concern can be found on the web pages of ECHA's Member State Committee.
