SVHC Duties

To assist clients in meeting requirements for products that contain substances of very high concern (SVHC) through the supply chain, Arcerion offers the SVHC compliance service which includes:


• Full substance inventory
• Periodic SVHC identification
• Generation of templates for formal communication letters to EU clients
• Authoring of CLP compliant safety data sheets (MSDS)


Suppliers of articles which contain SVHC in a concentration above 0.1 % (w/w) have to provide sufficient information to allow safe use of the article to their customers, or upon request, to a consumer within 45 days of the receipt of the request. The identification of a substance as SVHC and its inclusion in the candidate list, is the first step toward the authorisation procedure. Irrespectively, following such inclusion companies have immediate legal obligations linked to the listed substance on its own, in preparations and articles pursuant to REACH art. 7(2), 31(1) and 33.
