ECHA Consult on Amendment of Annex XIV of RAECH Regulation for Four Phthalates

Time : 2019-03-18 17:32:11
     12 December 2018, ECHA issued a notice to conduct public consultation on the amendment of annex XIV of REACH Regulation to the list of four phthalates authorized for their endocrine disrupting properties. The deadline for comments is 12 March 2019.
      The information of the four phthalates is as follows:
Name EC Number CAS Number Date of publication Deadline for commenting
Benzyl butyl phthalate (BBP) 201-622-7 85-68-7 12/12/2018 12/03/2019
Bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) 204-211-0 117-81-7 12/12/2018 12/03/2019
Dibutyl phthalate (DBP) 201-557-4 84-74-2 12/12/2018 12/03/2019
Diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP) 201-553-2 84-69-5 12/12/2018 12/03/2019
      These four phthalates have previously been identified as substances of very high concern (SVHCs) due to their reprotoxic and endocrine disrupting properties.
This amendment will mean that some uses which until now have been exempted may require authorization, such as:
      1. Uses of the four phthalates in mixtures in concentrations equal or above 0.1 % w/w (so far the concentration limit has been 0.3 % w/w);
      2. Some uses of DEHP (e.g. in food contact materials or medical devices) that will no longer fall under the ‘generic exemptions from the authorization requirement’ due to the endocrine disrupting effects on the environment of DEHP.
      CRT Testing reminds enterprises to pay attention to the revising of REACH Regulation to prevent the subsequent risk.
