From 5 January 2021, suppliers of articles containing substances of very high concern (SVHC) included in the candidate list and at a concentration above 0.1% will have to provide information for these products and their safe use to ECHA’s new SCIP database.
ECHA now published a new document that provides information on the detailed requirements, which include:
EU producers and assemblers as well as EU importers and distributors will have to provide information in the SCIP database in order to comply with the Waste Framework Directive. Thus, recyclers and other waste operators will be informed about the presence of SVHC in the waste products. In contrast to the notification requirement for SVHC in articles under REACH (Art 7(2)), the obligation to enter data into the SCIP database will be independant of the tonnage of contained SVHC.
2021 is coming much faster than you think, so it is important to get prepared for the SCIP database!
