  • diazene-1,2-dicarboxamide (C,C'-azodi(formamide)) (ADCA);
  • aluminosilicate Refractory Ceramic Fibres (Al-RCF);
  • zirconia Aluminosilicate Refractory Ceramic Fibres (Zr-RCF);
  • bis(pentabromophenyl) ether (decabromodiphenyl ether) (DecaBDE);
  • 4-(1,1,3,3-tetramethylbutyl)phenol, ethoxylated (4-tert-Octylphenol ethoxylates) (4-tert-OPnEO).

The consultation is now open and will end on 23 September 2013.
