The Candidate list is a list of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHCs). It is published by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) as part of the REACH regulation. 10 new substances were added to the list.
Why is this important to you?
OEKO-TEX® supports REACH compliance. This means by complying with the latest OEKO-TEX® test criteria, companies can be confident that they are also complying with the relevant conditions of the REACH regulation on harmful substances.
In the event that new candidate substances are relevant for textile production, the OEKO-TEX® criteria catalogue will assure the substances are checked and, if required, added to the OEKO-TEX®' own testing parameters.
The identification of a substance as a Substance of Very High Concern (SVHC) and its subsequent publication, is of special concern to the OEKO-TEX® community.
For a list of the newly added substances please go to the ECHA Website.
