Little Pro on 2022-06-17

ECHA added N-(hydroxymethyl)acrylamide  to the SVHC Candidate List on 10 June 2022 as it may cause cancer or genetic defects. The SVHC Candidate List now has 224 entries.

# Substance name EC number CAS number Reason for inclusion Examples of use(s)
1 N-(hydroxymethyl)acrylamide 213-103-2 924-42-5

Carcinogenic; Mutagenic

As a monomer for polymerisation, as a fluoroalkyl acrylate copolymer, and in paints and coatings.


Even though adding a substance to SVHC list does not mean immediate restriction or ban, EU producers or importers of articles which contain substances on the SVHC list in a concentration above 0.1% w/w have to provide sufficient information to their customers to allow safe use of the article as soon as the substances are included or, upon request, to a consumer within 45 days of the receipt of the request.

EU and EEA producers or importers of articles have to notify ECHA if their article contains a substance on the SVHC list. This obligation applies if the substance is present in those articles in quantities totalling over 1t/y per producer or importer, and if the substance is present in those articles above a concentration of 0.1% w/w 6 months from its inclusion date.
