As part of the European Union (EU) Waste Framework Directive 2008/98/EC (WFD), the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has built a database for storing safe-use information for substances of very high concern (SVHCs) present in articles placed on the market in the EU. It is referred to as the Substances of Concern In articles, as such or in complex objects (Products) (SCIP) database.
The EU WFD and SCIP database add to existing reporting requirements managed under the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) regulation. From 5 January 2021, suppliers of articles containing a SVHC on the Candidate List in a concentration above 0.1% weight by weight on the EU market need to submit that information via the new database to ECHA under the Waste Framework Directive.
We have undertaken a review of all our product components in order to assess the extent to which they contain the relevant concentration of SVHCs. Our EU established subsidiaries have submitted SCIP reports for affected products, which they sell in the EU market so that we are fully compliant with our reporting obligation.
In order to equip our EU customers with the required information to submit SCIP reports, or provide information to our customer’s own EU customers to do the same, the relevant SVHC information for our products is available upon request. - email@example.com
