|What is REACH ?||REACH is the chemical regulation in the EU, that intends to protect human health and the environment from risks posed by chemicals.|
|What do you mean by ""substance"" ?||A single chemical. Most liquid products are mixtures of several substances.
For example: wind screen wash fluid contains water, perfume and degreaser.
|What is an SVHC ?||REACH created the SVHC acronym, which stands for Substances of Very High Concern. The aim is to promote better communication with regards to SVHCs and ultimately, eradicate them entirely from the European market.
A substance is an SVHC if it meets at least one of the following criteria (Article 57):
- CMR substance, category 1A or 1B (Carcinogenic, Mutagenic or toxic to Reproduction)
- PBT substance (Persistent, Bio-accumulative and Toxic)
- vPvB substance (very Persistent and very Bio-accumulative)
- Substance of equivalent concern (example: endocrine disruptors)
|What is a Safety Data Sheet (SDS) ?||The Safety Data Sheet (SDS) is a mandatory passport for industrial hazardous chemicals (substances/mixtures). Drafted by manufacturers or supplier, the SDS is given to downstream users at no charge.
An SDS is mandatory when the substance or mixture is hazardous or assessed PBT, vPvB or SVHC (under REACH).
