EU releases first public database of SCIP
Approximately 6,000 companies in the European Union have met compliance by notifying the ECHA about products containing substances of very high concern (SVHC). This now contributes to over 4 million article notifications in the EU’s public database of substances of very high concern in products (SCIP).
Now, for the first time, consumers can access this database of SCIPs and make informed purchasing decisions. This database is searchable by article name, brand, product category, material type, or chemical name.
