EU Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC)
REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and restriction of CHemicals) is the system for controlling chemicals in Europe. In general terms, SVHC are substances that have hazards with serious consequences, e.g., they cause cancer, or they have other hazardous properties and/or remain in the environment for a long time with their amounts in animals gradually building up.
The European Commission has revised some of the information requirements for registering chemicals under REACH (Action 1, Action 2). This webinar focuses on the new and amended completeness check rules brought by this revision to help you prepare a complete registration dossier. We will also give you an overview of the process in general.
Completeness check will be aligned with the revised information requirements in May 2023, after the next major IUCLID release.
Join from our home page on 8 February at 11:00 EET, GMT +2. No registration required.
