POPs Regulation Compliance
Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are organic compounds that are resistant to environmental degradation through chemical, biological, and photolytic processes. Because of their persistence, these chemical substances are transported across international boundaries far from their sources and they persist in the environment, bioaccumulate through the food web, and pose a great hazard to human health and the environment.
SVHC ,“Substance of Very High Concern”, refers to any substance that has adverse effects on human health and the environment.
