ECHA Adds New SVHCs to REACH Candidate List

ECHA Adds New SVHCs to REACH Candidate List

The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) released six new additions to the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) Regulation’s Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) Candidate List today.

The substances that have been added to the list are:

Companies have a six-month window to communicate to downstream recipients if articles contain the listed SVHCs over the 0.1 percent weight by weight (w/w) threshold.

The REACH SVHC Candidate List is updated every six months, so it’s critical that companies in scope of REACH are regularly monitoring the Candidate List and evaluating their products for new substances.

Assent’s REACH Module is updated whenever new SVHCs are added to the Candidate List, and helps companies automate their data collection, validation and management. Streamlined supply chain outreach allows for complete visibility into the composition of products throughout the supply chain, as well as tracking of SVHCs.
