Tris(4-nonylphenyl, branched and linear) phosphite (TNPP) with ≥ 0.1% w/w of 4- nonylphenol, branched and linear (4-NP) Endocrine disrupting properties (environment) Antiossidante per polimeri (utilizzo primario)
2,3,3,3-tetrafluoro-2-(heptafluoropropoxy)propionic acid, its salts and its acyl halides (covering any of their individual isomers and combinations thereof) Equivalent level of concern having probable serious effects to the environment and human health Processing aid in the production of fluorinated polymers.
4-tert-butylphenol (CAS 98-54-4 EC 202-679-0) Endocrine disrupting properties (environment) Used in coating products, polymers, adhesives, sealants and for the synthesis of other substances.

The addition of these substances to the Candidate List requires, from the subjects concerned, a constant monitoring of the regulatory situation as they could be included among the substances subject to Authorization (Annex XIV REACH).
