ECHA recommends for the European Commission to add seven substances, including the cyclosiloxanes D4, D5 and D6, to the Authorisation List. Once on the list, companies will need to apply for authorisation to continue using them.

These substances have been added into the SVHC Candidate List on 27 Jun. 2018 as the 19th batch.

List of the seven substances are as follows:
