Hazardous Substance/Unidentified Contaminant Test
Counseling/System Establishment


The European Parliament and Council of EU legislated 1907/2006(EC) directive in December 2006 for the registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction of chemicals; the said directive is enforced since June 1 2007.

The restricted substances can be divided into negative listings and positive listings:
Negative listings: REACH directive Annex XVII coordinates management regulations of 43 existing chemicals and restricts use of 58 substances. Restricted items include toys, textile goods, garment, electronic goods and photograph appliances.
Positive listing: According to Article 7 and Article 33 of the REACH directive, the industry focuses on Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) issues which cover more than a thousand items. The suppliers are requested to report and disclose SVHC content in their products respectively to customers, consumers and ECHA (European Chemicals Agency).

Inspection Items:
Inspection of chemicals in the negative listing: According to REACH directive Annex XVII, the coordinated regulations on proposed chemicals to be tested differ from item to item; for instance for electronic products, only 12 chemicals are required to be tested. This significantly reduces test costs for the customers.
Inspection of chemicals in the positive listing: ECHA has prepared a long list of SVHC items which will be gradually announced year after year. In consideration of test costs of the industry and the accurate communication of SVHC information, iST has offered assistance to the industry to cope with REACH management mechanism in addition to developing SVHC inspection services.
