Hazardous Chemicals – substances of very high concern under REACH (E114)

Criteria question

Does the standard include criteria on chemicals listed on the REACH Candidate List as substances of very high concern?

Guidance

Refers to requirements that restrict or prohibit the use of substances of very high concern according to REACH. Refers to the authentic version of the Candidate List published by ECHA. For assessing this criterion, it has to be ensured that standards prohibit the SVHC of the Candidate List but allow specific derogations/deviations/exceptions for a defined use. 

If a standard does not explicitly prohibit SVHC/ substances of the REACH Candidate List but - as a result of a risk assessment - lists those substances for which usage restrictions or excepted uses apply, then the lowest DoI should be given.

Degree of Intensity (DoI)

  1. Prohibit use, except for defined derogations.
  2. Prohibit use for all processes.


In order to fulfil minimum criterion E114, the standard has to include an immediate obligatory requirement to prohibit the use of substances of very high concern under REACH except for defined derogations.
