REACH

REACH Regulation (EC), Article 33
Since 1 June 2007 REACH, Regulation (EC) 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and the Commission of 18 December 2006 on Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals (REACH), is in force.
There are certain so-called 'Substances of very high Concern' (SVHC), which will have to undergo an authorisation process under the new legislation. Those substances may potentially not get this authorisation or may get the authorisation for limited uses only. Those substances are described in more detail in  Article 57 of REACH and will initially be published on the so-called 'Candidate List' (see Art. 59.1), before they can be included in Annex XIV, the 'List of Substances Subject to Authorisation'. The Candidate List currently comprises 30 substances (status: April 2010). It is available at
http://echa.europa.eu/chem_data/candidate_list_en.asp.

In compliance with article 33 of the REACH-Regulation (EC) 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and the Commission of 18 December 2006, there is a "duty to communicate information on substances in articles", if one or more of the substances published exceeds the concentration of 0,1 % weight by weight.
