SCIP

Database for Information on Substances of Concern in Products

SCIP is a database established by the EU under the Waste Framework Directive, 2008/98/EC. Its targets are to make recycling of products safer and improve information on dangerous chemical content. SCIP notification applies to any EU supplier of an article as such or in a complex object if it contains Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) above 0.1% w/w, irrespective of the position in the supply chain. SVHCs are reported in the Candidate list by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA). “Candidate” refers to its future being potentially subject to authorization. This list is updated twice a year, leading to potential impacts on your SCIP obligation.
