Assessment

In a globalized world, consumers can easily be made aware of issues related to poor conditions of production for a particular favourite brand and are demanding transparent information as an important element of decision-making when choosing a product.

In response to lobbying from responsible investors and consumers, buyers and distributors are steadily being encouraged to put in place their own solutions to evaluate the compliance of their products to the increasingly stringent local and international regulations and standards.

REACH & RoHS

REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) is a regulation of the European Union, adopted to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals.

The REACH Regulation places responsibility on all consumer products producers and distributors to manage the risks from chemicals and to provide safety information on the substances.
In principle, REACH applies to all chemical substances; not only those used in industrial processes but also in our day-to-day lives, for example in cleaning products, paints as well as in
articles such as clothes, furniture and electrical appliances. Therefore, the regulation has an impact on most companies across the EU.

To comply with the regulation, companies must identify and manage the risks linked to the substances they manufacture and market in the EU. They have to demonstrate the ECHA (European Chemicals Agency) in Helsinki how the substance can be safely used, and they must communicate the risk management measures to the users.
If the risks cannot be managed, authorities can restrict the use of substances in different ways. In the long run, the most hazardous substances should be substituted with less dangerous ones.
Companies need to register their substances and to do this they need to work together with other companies who are registering the same substance.

ECHA receives and evaluates individual registrations for their compliance, and the EU Member States evaluate selected substances to clarify initial concerns for human health or for the environment. Authorities and ECHA's scientific committees assess whether the risks of substances can be managed.

The key Provisions of the REACH Regulation include:

  • Registration: Substances manufactured/imported over 1ton per year need to be registered with the European Chemical Agency (ECHA) by EU manufacturers and importers;
  • Evaluation: Registration dossiers submitted will be examined by ECHA for its environment/public health impact;
  • Authorization: Listed Substances of Very High Concern(SVHC) in Annex XIV are to be assessed and specifically allowed;
  • Restriction: Restricted substances in Annex XVII to be assessed for restriction or even banned;
  • Communication in the supply chain: Information about the safe use of chemicals should be communicated up- and downstream throughout the supply chain in the format of Safety Data Sheets, also called Chemical Safety Report or assessment.

Henz

HENZ is The out-of-the-box solution to assess your product’s REACH and SVHC compliance. 

Eurofins PT is proud to offer this excellent cost-saving, chemical safety assessment tool in close cooperation with CIRS, a member of the ECNA2.

The concept:

HENZ is a content evaluation analysis based on three fundamental pillars, probably the largest databases in the industry:

  1. Database of over 10.000 materials used in manufacturing most of the consumer products and components
  2. Database of over 180.000 substances contained in those materials, of which
    • Over 15.000 substances of concern
  3. International regulatory database

The cross-linked databases above mentioned, each of them in constant expansion with the daily updates brought in from the result of thousands of testing projects, allow this system to produce accurate and reliable BOS (Bill of Substances) out of simple BOM (Bill of Materials). 

The process

  1. Assuming the client’s product development department or the supplier provides the Bill of Materials (BOM), its data are entered into the system for recognition, along with the details of the destination countries where the product is to be marketed.
  2. HENZ classifies and interrelates the materials of your product with the substances listed in the database and generates the corresponding Bill of Substances.
  3. In an immediately next stage HENZ interlinks the Bill of Substances with the Regulatory framework of the destination countries, considering not just the harmonized, but also the local deviations, limits and tolerances.
    In addition, the data are customizable to your corporate benchmarking and easy web access is granted throughout the process.
  4. As a result, the system releases an accurate chemical safety assessment based on which your experts may decide to:
    a) either validate the product’s chemical safety and go ahead with the manufacturer´s declaration of compliance and market the product,
    b) or test some of the critical or ambiguous points resulting from the assessment.
