  • LIFE Ask REACH (LIFE16 GIE/DE/000738)
    In the context of the EU-LIFE-Program 20 partners covering 13 EU countries joined forces. LIFE AskREACH has the overall goal to enhance substitution of SVHC in articles by increasing the market demand for SVHC free articles and supporting industrial actors to identify SVHC in their articles. The project does not target industrial processing or particular articles or substances directly, but contributes to exposure reduction by raising awareness and ultimately changing the purchasing behaviour of consumers as well as the approaches to product design by the market actors.
