The ChemSec SIN List is an NGO driven project intended to identify Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) based on REACH criteria. The aim is to push the legislative process and provide a tool that business and other actors can use to substitute hazardous chemicals with safer alternatives – ahead of legislation.
ChemSec (The International Chemical Secretariat) is a non-profit organisation working for a toxic free environment. Their focus is to highlight the risks of hazardous substances and influence and speed up legislative processes. They act as a catalyst for open dialogue between authorities, business and NGOs and collaborate with companies committed to taking the lead. All of their work is geared to stimulating public debate and action on the necessary steps towards a toxic free world.
The SIN List is an NGO driven project intended to speed up the transition to a toxic free world. The SIN list is updated regularly and currently consists of 996 (updated March 2021) chemicals, that have been identified as Substances of Very High Concern based on the criteria established by the EU chemical regulation, REACH.
