SGS expands list of SHVC substances in textiles

Mar '13
With the addition of 54 new SVHCs onto the Candidate List on 19 December 2012, the number of SVHCs has been expanded to total 138 substances. In light of this rapid change, SGS has updated the SVHC SCREEN LITE program to help our clients easily identify and detect the presence of any high risk SVHC found in textile and footwear products, thus appropriate actions can then be taken to minimize the risks.
 
SVHC SCREEN LITE PROGRAM
In order to assist you to fulfill the REACH SVHC requirements, experts in the SGS technical competence centre have developed a robust and cost effective SVHC screening program targeting high risk SVHCs. The high risk SVHCs in this program are selected specifically for textile and footwear products on the basis of the official substance dossiers submitted to ECHA for SVHC consultations, reputable literature sources and our testing experiences. These substances are often found in materials such as plastic, leather, textile, prints and coating.
 
The selected SVHCs are categorized into the following groups:
-Phthalates
-Flame Retardants
-Alkylphenols and Alkylphenol Ethoxylates (APs & APEOs)
-Immediate for Dyes and Pigments
-Solvents
-Lead Compounds
-Chromium Compounds
-Sulphate Compounds
-Anhydride
-Others
 
REMARKS
This program aims to provide a preliminary screening of the defined high risk SVHCs in textile and footwear products only. Client shall prepare safety information for the product if any SVHC is found with >0.1% (w/w) so as to fulfill Article 33 requirement.
 
This program is only applicable to selected SGS Softlines Laboratories.
