ECHA has added 20 more chemicals to the Substances of High Concern (SVHC) list: more lead, chromate and arsenic compounds, phenolphthalein, dichloromethylenedianiline, BCME, EDC, anisidine, technical MDA, refractory ceramics and more.
The full list of SVHC is here

For these newly listed chemicals European importers and manufacturers must inform their downstream industrial users and respond to customer inquiries about the presence of these SVHC.  In addition, the batch listed in June  2011 are now subject to notification to ECHA for articles with >0.1% of those chemicals (along with all the other chemicals previously listed) unless the use in the articles were registered under REACH in November 2010.  More information is available from ECHA here.
