Immediate Impacts

Even though adding a substance to SVHC list does not mean immediate restriction or ban, EU producers or importers of articles which contain substances on the SVHC list in a concentration above 0.1% w/w have to provide sufficient information to their customers to allow safe use of the article as soon as the substances are included or, upon request, to a consumer within 45 days of the receipt of the request.

EU and EEA producers or importers of articles have to notify ECHA if their article contains a substance on the SVHC list. This obligation applies if the substance is present in those articles in quantities totalling over 1t/y per producer or importer, and if the substance is present in those articles above a concentration of 0.1% w/w 6 months from its inclusion date.
