Now, however, each component within a complex product is considered an article in itself. This ruling drastically changed the way companies apply REACH to their products, requiring importers to determine whether any single article within a product contains a substance of very high concern (SVHC) over the 0.1 percent weight by weight threshold.

Exemptions to RoHS are granted to narrowly-defined applications for which the elimination of the prohibited substance is technically or scientifically impracticable or when the only available substitution produces more negative than positive benefits to the environment, health, or consumer safety. These exemptions are granted for specific substances used in specific applications.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eSuppliers cannot assume that the exemptions automatically apply to their components, parts, materials, or products and are encouraged to request approval for use of any required RoHS exemptions via their Supply Chain representative.  Improperly applying an exemption could be termed as a non-compliance leading to enforcement action and/or your disqualification as a supplier.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eExemptions are temporary in nature and, under the RoHS recast, are subject to review at least every four years, until a reliable and safe substitution is available.

Implemented with the goal of protecting people and the environment from potentially harmful chemical substances, the REACH Regulation makes industry responsible for managing the risks of these substances in the market, and for providing the relevant safety information to users and consumers.

Now, however, each component within a complex product is considered an article in itself. This ruling drastically changed the way companies apply REACH to their products, requiring importers to determine whether any single article within a product contains a substance of very high concern (SVHC) over the 0.1 percent weight by weight threshold. If so, the importer (along with each purchaser of that product or component) has supply chain communication requirements. \u003c/span\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e What are substances of very high concern under the REACH Regulation?\u003c/strong\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003eSubstances of very high concern (SVHCs) are substances deemed to have serious or irreversible negative effects on human health and the environment. If a substance is identified as an SVHC, it may be added to the Candidate List for eventual inclusion in the Authorisation List (Annex XIV). Suppliers of articles containing SVHCs must provide the recipient of the article or the consumer with safety information about its use and composition if the substance is (a) found on the Candidate List and\u003c/span\u003e \u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003e(b) present in a concentration above the threshold of 0.1 percent weight by weight per article. \u003c/span\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e Does the REACH SVHC threshold apply to packaging?\u003c/strong\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003eYes, each level of packaging associated with a product is considered a separate article. For example, if each product is packed in styrofoam, which is then packed in an individual box, which is then packed in a larger box that is filled with bubble wrap, there are at least four (4) different articles in addition to the product. All of these must be assessed for compliance with the substances of very high concern (SVHC) threshold.\u003c/span\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e What is Registration under the REACH Regulation?\u003c/strong\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003eThe REACH Regulation requires companies that manufacture or import chemical substances in quantities greater than one ton per year to collect information about the properties in these substances and assess the risks they pose.
