New database for Substances of Concern launched by ECHA

The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has launched a new database for information on Substances of Concern 

The database called SCIP is destined for information on Substances of Concern In articles as such or in complex objects (Products) established under the Waste Framework Directive (WFD).  The aim is to make recycling of products safer and improve information about dangerous chemicals in products. 

The database ensures that the information on articles containing Substances of Very High Concern on ECHA’s Candidate List is available throughout the whole lifecycle of products and materials, including the waste stage. The information in the database is made available to waste operators and consumers. 

The Waste Framework Directive requires companies to submit their data as of 5 January 2021. Consumers and waste operators can access and use the data from February 2021 onwards. 

A webinar on SCIP, including a demo of the tools and new features, is planned by ECHA to take place on 19 November.
