Helsinki, 7 February 2024 – The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) is considering recommending the following substances for the REACH Authorisation List:

  • Melamine;
  • Bis(2-ethylhexyl) tetrabromophthalate covering any of the individual isomers and/or combinations thereof (TBPH);
  • S-(tricyclo[ 2,6]deca-3-en-8(or 9)-yl) O-(isopropyl or isobutyl or 2-ethylhexyl) O-(isopropyl or isobutyl or 2-ethylhexyl) phosphorodithioate;
  • Diphenyl(2,4,6-trimethylbenzoyl)phosphine oxide; and
  • Barium diboron tetraoxide.

ECHA is looking for further information on the uses of these substances in scope of authorisation, their possible exemptions from the authorisation requirement and on the structure and complexity of the supply chains. REACH registrants are, therefore, encouraged to update their use information alongside sending their comments.

The European Commission is calling for information separately on the possible socio-economic impacts of adding these substances to the Authorisation List. The information will be passed on directly to the Commission and will not be considered by ECHA.
