If your article contains substance(s) included in the SVHC list in concentration above 0.1% (w/w), you need to fulfill the following obligations:

 

  • Duty to communication information on SVHCs

 

Producers or importers of articles which contain substances on the SVHC list in a concentration above 0.1% (w/w) must provide sufficient information to their customers to allow safe use of the article as soon as the substances are included or, upon request, to a consumer within 45 days of the receipt of the request.

 

  • Notification of SVHC in articles to ECHA

 

EU and EEA producers or importers of articles must notify ECHA if their article contains a substance on the SVHC list. This obligation applies if the substance is present in those articles in quantities totalling over 1t/y per producer or importer, and if the substance is present in those articles above a concentration of 0.1% (w/w).
