Chilworth Technology Inc. now provides physico-chemical testing services for Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals (REACH) to ensure accurate classification for transportation of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) in the European Union (EU). The EU REACH regulation requires that SVHC either be declared as such and reported to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) or replaced by less hazardous substances.
Chilworth services help U.S. companies that export products or substances to the European Union identify the physico-chemical properties of SVHC. Chilworth can ensure that a company meets all EU regulatory requirements by providing documentation and preparation of Safety Data Sheets (SDS) for REACH compliance. This provides assurance to customers and regulators that REACH compliance has been attained.
“Our new REACH services are designed for U.S. companies that have a new substance or mixture that they plan to market in the EU, as it will help ensure the material can be handled and transported safely within the EU,” said Vahid Ebadat, CEO of Chilworth.
