 (a) the substance is present in those articles in quantities totalling over one tonne per producer or importer per year;

(b) the substance is present in those articles above a concentration of 0,1 % weight by weight (w/w).

For the following six substances of very high concern (SVHCs) which were added to the Candidate List last December the deadline is 17 June 2015:

•    2-(2H-benzotriazol-2-yl)-4,6-ditertpentylphenol (UV-328) (EC number 247-384-8);

•             2-benzotriazol-2-yl-4,6-di-tert-butylphenol (UV-320) (EC number 223-346-6);

•             2-ethylhexyl 10-ethyl-4,4-dioctyl-7-oxo-8-oxa-3,5-dithia-4-stannatetradecanoate (DOTE) (EC number 239-622-4);

•             Cadmium fluoride (EC number 232-222-0);

•             Cadmium sulphate (EC number 233-331-6);

•             Reaction mass of 2-ethylhexyl 10-ethyl-4,4-dioctyl-7-oxo-8-oxa-3,5-dithia-4-stannatetradecanoate and 2-ethylhexyl 10-ethyl-4-[[2-[(2-ethylhexyl)oxy]-2-oxoethyl]thio]-4-octyl-7-oxo-8-oxa-3,5-dithia-4-stannatetradecanoate (reaction mass of DOTE and MOTE).

All Importers and EU producers are advised to verify if their articles meet the conditions for the notification obligation under Article 7 of the REACH Regulation. Notification if required can be submitted either through the substance in article webform or through REACH-IT using IUCLID.
