With the addition of six new SVHCs to the Candidate List on 20 June 2013, the number of SVHCs has been expanded to total 144 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. Upon identification, appropriate actions can be taken to minimize the risks.

SVHC SCREEN LITE PROGRAM

In order to assist fulfilling 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. Inclusion in the list is based upon 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, textiles, prints and coating.

The selected SVHCs are categorized into the following groups:

-Phthalates
-Flame Retardants
-Alkylphenols and Alkylphenol Ethoxylates (APs & APEOs)
-Immediates for Dyes and Pigments
-Solvents
-Lead Compounds
-Chromium Compounds
-Sulphate Compounds
-Anhydrides
-Perfluorinated Compounds
-Others

This program provides a preliminary screening of the defined high risk SVHCs in textile and footwear products only. Clients shall prepare safety information for the product if any SVHC is found with >0.1% (w/w) so as to fulfill the REACH Article 33 requirement. This program is available at selected SGS Softlines Laboratories.
