Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) is one of the most comprehensive pieces of environmental legislation to come out of the European Union. It pertains to EU-based manufacturers and importers, requiring them to register chemicals that are manufactured or found existing in their products with the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA). This applies to all chemical substances that exceed one metric ton/year on a per substance per manufacturer basis. Failure to comply could result in product bans from sale in the EU market.
REACH testing is one of the methods used to determine whether or not products contain restricted chemicals, or substances of very high concern (SVHCs). Third-party laboratory testing allows you to verify compliance by testing for restricted or threshold-limited substances.
Below are some of the chemicals REACH regulates:
Annex XVII Restricted Substances
Candidate list of SVHCs (Substances of Very High Concern)
In your REACH compliance tests, we can test for all 235 SVHCs and deliver you a detailed report that includes the REACH-compliant testing methodology used, test results, and pictures of the specimens you provided. The report will deliver a PASS/FAIL determination and concentration levels for SVHC tests. We also offer screening for selected SVHCs based on client request.
You can also leverage QIMA’s quality control expertise by integrating REACH testing with your product inspections. This option allows you to maintain product quality and ensure REACH compliance at the same time.
Candidate List Extension
On June 14, 2023, 2 new SVHCs were added to the Candidate List (Diphenyl(2,4,6- trimethylbenzoyl)phosphine oxide & Bis(4-chlorophenyl) sulphone), which now contains 235 substances.
QIMA REACH testing can help you prepare your registration of chemical substances with ECHA and ensure compliance with REACH requirements.
