The European Chemicals Agency has identified 10 chemicals that it reportedly plans to add to its list of “chemicals of very high concern,” which would result in their phase out under the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical substances program. The chemicals include five that are classified as carcinogenic, mutagenic or reproductive toxins; four that are classified as very persistent and very bioaccumlulative; and one that is classified as an endocrine disruptor. They are: ammoniumpentadecafluorooctanoate; cadmium; cadmium oxide; dipentyl phthalate; pentadecafluorooctanoic acid; 2-(2H-benzotriazol-2-yl)-4-(tert-butyl)-6-(sec-butyl)phenol; 2-(2H-benzotriazol- 2-yl)-4,6-ditertpentylphenol; 2,4-di-tert-butyl-6-(5-chlorobenzotriazol-2-yl)phenol; 2-benzotriazol-2-yl-4,6-di-tert-butylphenol; and 4-nonylphenol, branched and linear, ethoxylated. The proposal is open for comment until April 18, 2013.
