The Article 33 of EU REACH REGULATION 1907/2006 imposes the obligation to communicate to our Customers the presence in supplied articles of substances included in the list referred to in Article 59 of the REACH REGULATION “Candidate list of substances of Very High Concern” (SVHC), in a concentration greater than 0.1% weight by weight.

Companies supplying articles containing substances of very high concern (SVHCs) on the Candidate List in a concentration above 0.1% weight by weight (w/w) on the EU market have to submit information on these articles to ECHA through the SCIP database: a database for information on “Substances of Concern In articles as such or in complex objects (Products)” established under the Waste Framework Directive (WFD).
