ECHA REACH SVHC Database
What is it and how to comply
On 22 May 2019, Claigan Environmental Inc. will present the proposed REACH SVHC database of the European Chemical Agency (ECHA). The webinar will cover the known data requirements, the scope, compatibility with current REACH SVHC declarations, and practical approaches to submit data.
The new EU Waste Directive (2018/851) includes a requirement for the ECHA to create a database for hazardous substances in materials and products. At this point in time, the hazardous substances are limited to the EU REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals) Regulation’s Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC). According to the EU Waste Directive, SVHC information is required to be submitted into the database for each product by January 5, 2021.
Even though the final technical details are still in development, a prototype version is expected in 2019 with manufacturers and importers being able to enter their data in 2020. This webinar will cover what is known to date and show practical solutions to complying with the requirements.
The main topics to be covered in this webinar are –
- EU Waste Directive
- Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC)
- SVHC declarations
- Data requirements
- Complying in practice
- Example declarations
Due to the interest in this topic, two (2) webinars will be held on May 22 to accommodate a larger audience, one at 10:00 am and one at 2:00 pm.
