                   Candidate List of Substances of Very High Concern
                                                  January 2024


The identification of a substance as a Substance of Very High Concern (SVHC) and its
inclusion on the Candidate List is the first step of the Authorisation procedure of the
REACH regulation.

Article 33 of the REACH regulation states that manufacturers of a preparation are
required to notify their customers if any SVHC listed on the Candidate List is present
in their products exceeding 0.1% by weight.

Since 28 October 2008, the ECHA has included 240 substances on the Candidate List.
Rubber Resources has selected 19 of these substances with a potential use in the
rubber industry. Three of these are pigments and are only used in coloured rubber
compounds. Rubber Resources uses only black raw materials without any colouring
pigments. For all recycled products of Rubber Resources, analyses of the remaining
16 substances has shown individual concentrations far below 0.1% (w/w)

Based on these test results and generic information and knowledge, Rubber
Resources confirms that none of their recycled products contain a SVHC listed on the
Candidate List in a concentration above 0.1% (w/w). This statement includes all
grades of butyl reclaim (RBR) and natural rubber reclaim (RNR).
