REACH SVHC is part of a chemical safety and environmental protection regulation that receives relatively high public attention. Product complexity and continuous update of the Candidate List has laid a heavy burden on the E&E industry. Although existing approaches, such as pure testing and quality management, provide solutions to tackle this issue, these approaches are often resulting in high testing costs and increased use of resources.
Gathering the necessary information about the presence or levels of SVHC in a product can place an additional burden on the supply chain. Furthermore, the data quality of self-declarations is not always as accurate as expected.
Demonstrating compliance with the help of third-party risk evaluation analysis can not only reduce compliance costs, but also increase confidence in the compliance process.
