SCIP duty kicks in: 5 million notifications received for harmful chemicals in products

Europe

Since 5 January, companies have had to submit data to ECHA on chemicals of concern in their products. Over five million notifications have already been received in the SCIP database, and the data will be published in the coming months.

Helsinki, 11 January 2021 – The obligation to submit data on substances of very high concern (SVHCs) in articles under the Waste Framework Directive applies as of 5 January 2021. The new requirements concern all companies placing articles containing SVHCs from the Candidate List on the EU market.

Companies have already submitted more than five million notifications to the database. ECHA will start publishing the data on its website in the coming months, and this function will be further developed. The increased transparency on chemicals of concern will help consumers make more informed choices and improve waste operators’ recycling processes.

Bjorn Hansen, ECHA’s Executive Director says: “Forward-looking companies have already sent the requested information to us and contributed to a safer circular economy. I encourage all companies to follow their example and play their part in increasing the knowledge we have on hazardous chemicals in products.”

ECHA’s IT systems are ready to continue receiving a large number of notifications. To support companies in ensuring successful submissions, ECHA has published manuals, webinars as well as tips for successful SCIP notifications and for the use of the system-to-system service. The Agency’s helpdesk is ready to help individual companies with specific issues.
