SVHCs in articles – significant guidance under development in Summer 2016

The ruling of the Court of Justice of the European Union of 10 September 2015 on Substances of Very High Concern (SVHCs) in articles is still reverberating across the sector.

08 August 2016

ECHA will continue revising its guidance on Substances in Articles through Summer 2016, and producers and importers of articles are still adjusting to their revised duties under the judgment.

Businesses need to move quickly to ensure continuing compliance, even in advance of the revised ECHA guidance, to ensure they do not fall behind competitors. Our chemicals and product stewardship specialists can support your business through bespoke training packages covering some or all of the following issues: 

  • The key legal aspects of the CJEU judgment.
  • When and how to notify ECHA under Article 7 (2).
  • Checking whether exemptions apply.
  • Annex XVII Restrictions.
  • An update on emerging ECHA guidance.
  • Communications to recipients under Article 33.
  • Communications to customers under Article 33.
  • Case studies based on your own firm's products.
  • The possible future impacts of Brexit on these provisions.

If you would like to discuss the training package options, please contact Simon Tilling.
