What are SVHCs Under the REACh Regulation?

Substances of very high concern (SVHCs) are substances deemed to have serious or irreversible negative effects on human health and the environment. If a substance is identified as an SVHC, it may be added to the Candidate List for eventual inclusion in the Authorisation List (Annex XIV). Suppliers of articles containing SVHCs must provide the recipient of the article or the consumer with safety information about its use and composition if the substance is (a) found on the Candidate List and (b) present in a concentration above the threshold of 0.1 percent weight by weight per article.
