“The list of substances of very high concern (SVHC) or candidate list has been updated with the inclusion of a new substance, N-(hydroxymethyl)acrylamide (EC 213-103-2, CAS 924-42-5). This substance has human health effects (carcinogenicity and mutagenicity) and is mainly used as a monomer in the polymerisation and manufacture of other chemicals, in textiles, leather or furs, as a fluoroalkyl acrylate copolymer, and in paints and coatings. This list of SVHCs is updated in January and June/July each year and now contains 224 substances.”
