As a plastic packaging manufacturer, customers often ask about the content of compounds that are included in the SVHC (Substances Very High Concern) list, and other compounds that may be of concern to health.
My question is, do these compounds need to be included as a chemical hazard in the hazard analysis document even though there is no intentional addition in the production process?
For information, we usually only ask for statements from resin suppliers, no tests are carried out to verify them. This ingredient-free statement is our basis for making CoC (Certificate of Compliance). Is this practice enough?

Hi Fahrani,


You have to deeply assess the risks involved in your hazard analysis and assume the risks based on your specific operational and process environment. Lack of Intentional addition of anything at anywhere is not always an assurance to something that not created/developed in the later stages.


You have to have a deep dive into your processes and eliminate every element of risks to assume so.
