In September 2016 EU member states discussed adding 12 SVHCs to the Authorisation List, Annex XIV under REACH. The 12 SVHCs are:

  1. 1-bromopropane (n-propyl bromide)
  2. diisopentylphthalate
  3. 1,2-benzenedicarboxylic acid di-C6-8-branched alkyl esters C7-rich
  4. 1,2-benzenedicarboxylic acid, di-C7-11-branched and linear alkyl esters
  5. 1,2-benzenedicarboxylic acid, dipentylester, branched and linear
  6. bis(2-methoxyethyl) phthalate
  7. dipentylphthalate
  8. n-pentyl-isopentylphthalate
  9. anthracene oil
  10. pitch, coal tar, high temperature
  11. 4-(1,1,3,3-tetramethylbutyl)phenol, ethoxylated
  12. 4-nonylphenol, branched and linear, ethoxylated

Once an SVHC is placed on Authorisation List, a sunset date is determined regarding the last date the substance can be used without authorisation of the substance.
