Intertek offers testing, consulting, and assessment services for Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) compliance.
The European Chemical Agency (ECHA) has current and future substances identified as Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC).
Once a substance is added to the SVHC Candidate List, the EU REACH Regulation imposes immediate obligations on manufacturers and importers to declare the substances if present. Article 33(1) of the REACH Regulation states that manufacturers and importers of articles (products) are required to notify their customers of the presence of any Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) in their products exceeding 0.1% by weight and provide instructions on safe use of the product.
REACH SVHC Compliance and Disclosure requirements:
- Determine whether products contain any SVHCs in excess of 0.1% weight by product
- Disclose the presence of SVHCs in products within 45 days upon request from consumers or customers
- Ensure environmental compliance and safety of products
