There are now 235 entries for chemicals that can be harmful to persons or the environment on the Candidate List of compounds of extremely high concern. Companies control the risk associated with these substances and educate clients and customers on how to use them safely.

Two new substances have been added by ECHA (European Chemicals Agency) to the Candidate List. One harms reproduction, whereas the other has dangerous, persistent, and bioaccumulative characteristics. They are utilized, for instance, in creating plastic goods, inks, and toners.

Sl. No Substance name EC # CAS # Reason for inclusion Examples of use(s)
1 Diphenyl (2,4,6-trimethyl benzoyl) phosphine oxide 278-355-8 75980-60-8 Toxic for reproduction (Article 57c) Inks and toners, coating products, photo-chemicals, polymers, adhesives, sealants, fillers, putties, plasters, and modeling clay.
2 Bis(4-chlorophenyl) sulphone 201-247-9 80-07-9 vPvB (Article 57 e) Manufacture of chemicals, plastic products, and rubber products.

In the future, these substances may be placed on the Authorization List. Since a chemical is on that list, its usage is restricted until organizations request authorization and the European Commission permits them to keep using it.
