REACH SVHC and Packaging

Question Posed:

Does the REACH SVHC threshold apply to packaging?

Answer Provided:

Yes, each level of packaging associated with a product is considered a separate article. For example, if each product is packed in styrofoam, which is then packed in an individual box, which is then packed in a larger box that is filled with bubble wrap, there are at least four (4) different articles in addition to the product. All of these must be assessed for compliance with the substances of very high concern (SVHC) threshold.
