Member States or the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), on request of the European Commission, may propose a substance to be identified as an SVHC by preparing a dossier in accordance with the requirements set out in Annex XV to REACH. The Annex XV reports can be found by selecting the "Details" button in the table listing the substances that are proposed. All interested parties are invited to submit comments on such reports during the public consultation.

C&K Testing reminds enterprises to pay close attention to the information about SVHC, and strengthen the cooperation with professional testing agencies, so as to make sure the product is compliant and prevent the subsequent risk efficiently.
