SCIP Database is Ready for Use

By: SiliconExpert on October 28th, 2020

The ECHA has launched officially the SCIP Database “Substances of Concern In articles, as such or in complex objects (Products)”.  Companies can now submit data on substances of very high concern (SVHCs) within their articles.  This database has been developed in close cooperation with industry stakeholders and a dedicated IT user group of more than 60 members. SiliconExpert is honored to have been one of those contributing members to help ensure responsible reporting of substances of very high concern (SVHCs).

In addition, IUCLID 6.5 is now available for all users.  This is a new major release of IUCLID.

Starting January 5, 2021, submissions of substances of very high concern (SVHCs) will be a requirement by the Waste Framework Directive. This deadline is being driven by a deadline to have this database accessible for view and use by consumers and waste operators starting February 2021.

According to our clients, the main heavy lift in this whole process is the data collection from suppliers. This effort taps into valuable resources.
