Substance of Very High Concern(SVHC)
A substance of very high concern (SVHC) is a chemical substance (or part of a group of substances) for which it has been proposed that use within the European Union is subject to authorisation under the REACH regulations. Listing of a substance as a SVHC by the European Chemical Agency (ECHA) is the first step in the procedure to restrict use of this substance.
To date some substances supplied by the Schloetter group have ingredients listed on the candidate list and supplementary guidance is available as follows:
|WI REACH 004||SVHC Boric Acid|
|WI REACH 005||SVHC Disodium Tetraborate|
|WI REACH 008||SVHC Lead Methane Sulphonate|
Chromates and Chromic Acid has progressed on to the full Annex XIV SVHC list and given a sunset date, beyond which authorisation will be required for their use. Details of the sunset date, how authorisation works and alternative products are covered in the following guidance notes.
|WI REACH 003||SVHC Chromating|
|WI REACH 007||SVHC Chromic Acid|
