|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|
