14 CMR-chemicals added to the list of substances of very high concern

22 October 2020

The organisation RIVM has recently updated the Dutch list of so-called substances of very high concern and has added 14 CMR chemicals to their list. CMR chemicals are carcinogenic, mutagenic and/or reproduction toxic. Please be aware that it is not allowed to work with these chemicals unless you can show that there is no alternative available (costs are no argument here). 

Do you work with hazardous substances?

Please check if extra safety measures are needed when you work with these chemicals (see list below). For more information or help with either your risk analysis or choosing safety measures, contact the safety department AMD.   

Chemical added to the list

These 14 chemicals were added to the list of substances of very high concern: 

  • fibers consisting of siliciumcarbide 

  • tris(2-methoxyethoxy) vinylsilaan 

  • ipconazool and 2  diastereoisomers of ipconazool 

  • tetraglyme 

  • 2,2-bis(broommethyl) propaan-1,3-diol 

  • 2-(4-tert-butylbenzyl) propionaldehyde 

  • diisoöctylftalaat 

  • 2-methoxyethylacrylaat 

  • natrium-N-(hydroxymethyl)glycinaat because of the release of formaldehyde 

  • pyrithionzink 

  • flurochloridone 

  • dichloordioctylstannaan 

  • resorcinoldiglycidylether 

  • bis(α,α-dimethylbenzyl)peroxide 

The complete list can be found and downloaded at the RIVM website.  

According to Dutch legislation emission (waste) of chemicals from  this list has to be minimised, which means that we have to strive the absolute minimal use of these specific chemicals.
