An addition of 5 substances have been newly included in the authorization list and the total no. of substances under the list have been updated from 54 to 59.
In February 2022, the draft 11th recommendation of the list of substances subject to authorization have been released with comment period closed in May 2022. ECHA provided its final recommendation to the European Commission in Spring 2023. The Commission will decide which substances to include in the Authorization List and on the respective conditions applicable for each substance.
