Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation, and Restriction of Chemicals
The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) is responsible for the maintenance of the Candidate list of substances of very high concern (SVHC). This list is updated twice a year.
As soon as a substance has been included on the Candidate list, any supplier of an article which contains one of the listed substances in a concentration above 0, 1% (w/w), has to provide sufficient information to the recipient about the substance to allow safe use. As a minimum, the name of the substance has to be provided.
REACH information will be shared with relevant parties, for all articles that are placed on the market by DeLaval as such, or as a part of a product, when they contain any of the listed substances on the Candidate List, above the set concentration.
