Substances of Very High Concern

New Report for the SVHC list of substances

On 15 January 2018 – the European Chemicals Agency added 7 chemical substances to the Candidate List of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) for authorisation. Companies manufacturing or importing these substances need to check their potential obligations that result from the listing. Companies may have legal obligations resulting from the inclusion of substances in the List. These obligations can apply to the listed substances on their own as well as in mixtures and in articles. A short summary of the obligations is available on ECHA´s website Click Here. The Chemdoc application has this information available in a new report for the SVHC list of substances. The report is accessible through the substance tab on Chemdoc.
