South Korea Plans Additions to the List of Priority Control Substances

The South Korean Ministry of Environment (MoE) plans to add 162 more substances to the List of Priority Control Substances (in Korean). K-REACH, the South Korean chemicals regulation, is the basis for the change.
If you use or import one of the products on the list, you must meet special reporting requirements for the MOE as of January 1, 2024. The reports must cover use, contents, and exposure scenarios.

Priority Control Substances include:

  • Carcinogenic, mutagenic, and reprotoxic substances (CMR)
  • Endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs)
  • Persistent, bioaccumulative, and toxic (PBT) chemicals
  • Specific target organ toxicity (STOT) substances
  • Substances of very high concern (SVHC)
