LONDON (ICIS)--The European Chemicals Agency’s (ECHA’s) member state committee (MSC) has identified five chemical substances of very high concern (SVHC) to be added to the candidate list of substances for authorisation under EU rules, the agency said on Tuesday.

“The MSC identified five new SVHCs – one, diborontrioxide – through written procedure and four dyes at its meeting,” the ECHA said.

“These five SVHCs will be included in the candidate list in its next update, together with eight further substances that did not require the MSC's involvement,” it added.

In addition the MSC also finalised 41 draft dossier evaluation decisions.
