CEPN Priority Chemicals are process chemicals to be prioritized for elimination or substitution in electronics manufacturing. This first round of Priority Chemicals focuses on solvents used in manufacturing cleaning products.  Additional rounds of Priority Chemicals will be identified in the future.

Selection Process
The selection process began with chemicals present on CEPN member companies’ Manufacturing Restricted Substances Lists (MRSL). The chemicals were then screened against the CEPN High Hazard Criteria, use in the electronics industry and whether safer alternatives were available.  

More information on the selection and research conducted for these Priority Chemicals can be found in the Summary of Priority Chemical Selection Report, December 2019.

First Round of Priority Chemicals
Nine chemicals were selected for this first round of Priority Chemicals as they met the Network Members’ criteria for selection:

  1. Meets CEPN High Hazard Criteria
  2. Used as a solvent in cleaning products
  3. Some indication of use within the electronics industry
  4. Potentially viable safer alternatives available
