No. 09/2010
Purpose: REACH regulation of EU has come in force since 2010/06/01. After the authority “ECHA” was found on first of June, 2008, the registration, the communication providing information of safety use and the restricted use of the substances listed in the Annex 17 have been requested step by step. Since the REACH regulation came in force, the REACH regulation has been updated irregularly. Especially the updated frequency of the candidate list that is mostly concerned let all companies feel astonished. The development of the candidate list can be found below:
2008/10/28: ECHA published the candidate list that included 15 items of SVHC;

2010/01/13: ECHA added 14 items of SVHC to the candidate list;total 29 items of SVHC

2010/03/08: ECHA published the intension list that included 8 items of SVHC

2010/03/25: ECHA expressed that about 106 items will be confirmed and added to the candidate
list before 2012;

2010/03/30: ECHA added the substance “Acrylamide” back to the candidate list, total 30 items
of SVHC. In order to help our customers starting from 1st of June 2010, SGS provides a new service called “SVHC testing update service”. This service can help our customers solve the problem about the yearly new additional items of the candidate list.
Service Scope: All the articles are exported into EU, for example: Electronic components, 3C products, toy and textile, etc..

The service only applies to the cases that will have tested the latest complete candidate list in the initial application every year.
Features: The initial application is charged according to SGS’ service models. After that within 1 year SGS will test the original sample for all the new additional items of the candidate list for free.
