From 2021, companies will be required to submit “SCIP information” for all articles offered on the EU market and containing a substance of very high concern (SVHC) from the REACH Candidate List in a concentration above 0.1 % weight by weight (w/w). The SCIP database of the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) is designed to provide waste operators with information on hazardous substances to enable high-quality recycling or disposal. The legal basis for this is the European framework directive for waste, No. 2008/98/EC, as amended by Directive (EU) 2018/851. This concerns all companies manufacturing, distributing or supplying articles as such or in complex products containing substances of very high concern (SVHCs) on the REACH Candidate List in a concentration of 0.1% w/w or above, or importing them to the EU. They are consequently required to not only declare their products in keeping with Article 33 of the REACH Regulation, but also enter further information in the SCIP database on top of this. This information is to be made available to waste operators, and also consumers upon request.
