Three (3) substances were proposed. If all of the proposed substances are identified as substances of very high concern (SVHCs), the total number of SVHCs listed on the Candidate List will increase from 197 to 201 in July 2019. This is because there is another substance 4-tert-butylphenols (PTBP)2, which was proposed to be identified as SVHC by the European Commission and it is expected to be included into Candidate List in the next update.
Table A gives the substance names, identification numbers (CAS and EC), the reason(s) for proposing and their potential application(s).
