Intertek provides comprehensive product and component level testing and screening for SVHC as listed in REACH Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemical Substances – (EC1907/2006) compliance.
To ensure that chemical substances found in everyday products are safe to human health and the environment, the European Union enacted the REACH Regulation to control potentially hazardous substances. Under the REACH Regulation, Substances of Very High Concern (SVHCs) must be identified and disclosed.

Intertek’s SVHC Testing and Screening Services:
Utilizing Intertek’s vast wealth of analytical laboratories worldwide, Intertek provides SVHC testing for a broad range of products including automotive, aerospace, electronics, consumer, building, cosmetics, and general preparations. Intertek’s global laboratories use modern analytical, quantification, and deformulation techniques on soluble and insoluble materials to create a comprehensive fingerprint of each product for use in the SVHC declaration.
If products contain any SVHCs, Intertek can provide a risk assessment to identify in which material or component the SVHC is present, create a replacement strategy, or prepare REACH disclosure documentation to assure your business is not interrupted.
Intertek Wide-Scan SVHC Testing
Intertek offers an optional service which provides a level of chemical knowledge for products with regard to future SVHC substances. Intertek offers an industry leading ‘wide scan’ testing approach inclusive of data and sample storage. If a future substance is added to the SVHC Candidate List, Intertek’s skilled scientists can re-review the ‘wide-scan’ data to provide a level of confidence of the presence of the new chemical in the original test sample. By using ‘wide-scan’ testing with data storage and review, Intertek customers have a reasonable level of confidence in being able to handle new SVHC substances without unnecessarily re-testing products.
