REACH – Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC)
A chemical is required to be registered under REACH if it is manufactured or imported into the EU, at or above, one tonne per year and occupies over 0.1% of the final product weight. See http://echa.europa.eu/support/guidance for assistance.
Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) will be published and updated by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) periodically; suppliers should follow the most up-to-date version from http://echa.europa.eu/. GNA requires all products to remain under the 0.1% limit for any SVHC substance or SVHC candidate list substance.
Note. Testing is not required for the chemicals on the REACH SVHC list unless that substance is part of the GNA® RSL or the supplier suspects, or is aware of, the presence of a SVHC in their product.
