The Task Force has created this standardised approach to REACH. It is a practical guide that clearly outlines the necessary tasks. The AIG is highly recommended; it is easy to follow and brings clear benefits when implemented across industry. The most recent edition was released in June 2012.
The Automotive Industry regularly discusses issues of shared concern. The content of the most important topics are summarised in Position Papers and Communications. These may be updated from time to time.
The Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) content in articles may need to be notified to ECHA. The Task Force has developed a tool for simplifying the decision making process. Each SVHC is analysed with recommendations suggested for the appropriate course of action.
If you use hazardous substances registered under REACH, your suppliers now have to provide you in most cases with a new, extended safety data sheet that includes exposure scenarios. The extended safety data sheet summarises the key information from the chemical safety assessment that a company in your supply chain has carried out under REACH
The impact of SVHCs on the automotive supply chain is continuously evaluated. Substitution and communication activity can efficiently be targeted using this survey information.
