Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC)
REACH requires a special authorisation procedure for substances identified by a scientific evaluation as being of very high concern.
The authorisation procedure under REACH is subject to clear rules and proceeds through several steps.
The inclusion of a substance in the "candidate list" according to Article 59(1) of REACH results in a number of obligations.
If substances produced or imported by BASF are subsequently included in the so called Annex XIV of the REACH regulation – and their use is there- fore subject to authorisation – BASF intends to contact the customers directly.
With this procedure, we provide you with immediate and comprehensive information. You therefore do not need to submit inquiries yourself.
