SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection and certification company, is hosting a live webinar on September 21, 2021, “Everything E&E Brands Need to Know About the ECHA SCIP Database.”

The Substances of Concern In articles as such, or in complex objects (Products) (SCIP) database is a 'hot' topic right now as it aims to improve transparency on hazardous substances in articles and promote the substitution of hazardous chemicals and a circular economy.

The SCIP database, established under the Waste Framework Directive 2008/98/EC (WFD), requires any supplier of an article containing a Candidate List substance (SVHC) in a concentration above 0.1% (w/w) on the EU market to submit information on that article to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), as from January 5, 2021. The SCIP database ensures that the information on articles containing Candidate List substances is available throughout the whole life cycle of products and materials, including at the waste stage.

Mr Freddie Chen, SGS Technical Supervisor responsible for chemical testing and compliance solutions, will share with participants how to effectively and successfully submit the required information, including details of the i6z file, the triggering point and duty holder responsibilities.
