At its 80th meeting, the Member State Committee (MSC-80) discussed several items related to substance evaluation, the identification of SVHCs (substances of very high concern), and the inclusion of priority substances in Annex XIV of REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) regulation.

During the meeting, draft decisions on substance evaluation were introduced and discussed, with the committee seeking agreement on the draft decisions. The substance under evaluation was reaction products of diphenylamine with nonene, branched (EC No. 701-385-4).

The committee also sought agreement on Annex XV proposals for the identification of SVHCs, specifically regarding the substance melamine (EC No. 203-615-4).

In addition, ECHA's (European Chemicals Agency) recommendations for priority substances to be included in Annex XIV were reviewed by the committee. It was noted that the scores for volume and/or wide-dispersiveness of use for three substances (2-(4-tert-butylbenzyl) propionaldehyde, ethylenediamine, and glutaral) had been revised, but these changes did not affect the overall priority of the substances and they were still recommended for inclusion in Annex XIV.

Finally, the committee presented the second draft MSC opinion on the endocrine disrupting properties of BPF and BPAF and its salts, in response to a request for an opinion in accordance with Article 77(3) c of REACH regulation.
