Guidance on SVHC-communication in articles.

The guidance provides basic information and workflows on how to identify the communication needs regarding SVCH in articles for article producers and importers. Each step in the process is explained. As a result of using the guide, the user obtains a list of information that could be provided to the recipients of the article in order to ensure safe handling and use of the article and to enable taking full producer responsibility for the chemical safety.
