SIN List

Helping you stay ahead of the EU REACH regulation

The SIN (Substitute it Now!) List is a globally used database of chemicals likely to be banned or restricted in a near future. The chemicals on the SIN List have been identified by ChemSec as Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) based on the criteria established by the EU chemicals regulation REACH.

So far, ChemSec has a pretty good track record of predicting which chemicals that eventually ends up on the EU REACH Candidate List. Out of all SVHC’s regulated under REACH today, ChemSec named 94 percent of them well ahead of the authorities.

The aim of the SIN List is to spark innovation towards products without hazardous chemicals by speeding up legislative processes and giving guidance to companies and other stakeholders on which chemicals to start substituting.

Over 10 000 users search the SIN List every year in our publicly available, free-of-charge database.
