The regulation for their inclusion was published in February 6, 2020 – COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) 2020/171. Their addition to the authorisation list increases the number of substances in the Annex XIV from 43 to 54.


The authorisation process aims to ensure that substances of very high concern (SVHCs) are progressively replaced by less dangerous substances or technologies where technically and economically feasible alternatives are available.

The route to authorisation starts when a Member State or ECHA, at the request of the Commission, proposes a substance to be identified as an SVHC.More on obligations in terms of SVHCs on Ekotox: https://ekotox.eu/substances-of-very-high-concern-svhc/
