The list consists of criteria (CAS and EC numbers) for chemical substances that have some kind of restriction in terms of using and placing on the market in the European union, according to REACH.
The list is often known as "REACH restricted substances list" or simply as "REACH annex XVII".
The criteria is collected from ECHA's website and kept updated continuously according to the official site for Substances restricted under REACH.
Since March 25, 2023, we have also supplemented the list with additional criteria (CAS and EC numbers). Our EHS consultants have carried out investigations of all substance groups and variants of substances, supplementing the list with substances that are not on ECHA's official website for REACH Annex XVII, but which by definition are subject to restrictions. We therefore help you to easily find more substances that are subject to restrictions within the EU.
Follow these steps to find out which substance causing the match against the restricted list.
1. Go to Overview > Restriction and Prohibition Lists > REACH Annex XVII Restriction
2. Click on a product, to get to the product's iSafe/product info.
3. Scroll down to the Restricted and Prohibited Lists field and find "REACH Annex XVII Restriction". There you see which substance causes the match.
4. If you want to know the concentration of that substance in the product, you can either check section 3 of the product's SDS, or click on "Show composition" at the bottom of the page.
If you want to know more about the substance that causes the match, you can search for it on ECHA's website, or contact our EHS consultants at firstname.lastname@example.org who will be happy to help you further.
Keep in mind that the restriction list is indicative, i.e. will show all products that have CAS or EC numbers for substances on the list, regardless of area of use or concentration level. If you find products that are not covered by the restrictions, you can choose to exclude them from the list.
