MCCP (CAS No. 1372804-76-6, 85535-85-9, 198840-65-2 and EG No. 950-299-5)
1,4-dioxane (CAS No. 123-91-1)
orthoboric acid, sodium salt (CAS No. 25747-83-5, 22454-04-2, 14312-40-4, 1333-73-9, 1333-73-9 and 14890-53-0)
Glutaral (CAS No. 111-30-8)
4,4′-(1-methylpropylidene)bisphenol (CAS No. 77-40-7)
2-(4-tert-butylbenzyl)propionaldehyde and its individual stereoisomers (CAS No. 75166-31-3, 80-54-6 and 75166-30-2)
– 2,2-bis(bromomethyl)propane-1,3-diol (BMP); 2,2-dimethylpropan-1-ol, tribromo derivative/3-bromo-2,2-bis(bromomethyl)-1-propanol (TBNPA); 2,3-dibromo-1-propanol (2,3-DBPA) (CAS No. 1522-92-5, 36483-57-5, 3296-90-0 and 96-13-9)

Whereas most substances were agreed to identify as svhc by the Member States Committee (MSC) in written procedure, the first three substances (PDDP, MCCP and 1,4 dioxane) were discussed in the MSC-meeting from 14-17 June 2021.

The new svhc are present in a variety of use-scenarios such as in the manufacture of polymer resins, oils and greases, use as fuel additives, adhesives and anti-freeze agents, corrosion inhibitor, paints and pigments, but especially MCCP are used in many products as flame retardants or plasticizers. Also, MCCP are currently under discussion to be added to Annex II of the EU RoHS directive!
