ECHA added five new substances to the candidate list in December.

These five substances were included in the candidate list because they are either carcinogenic, very-persistent very-bioaccumulative or toxic to reproduction. Inclusion in the candidate may ultimately result in the substances being subject to Authorisation in the EU.
