Do you produce, import or supply a product that is placed on the EU market and contains SVHCs?

From January 2021, all companies placing products on the EU market must notify those containing SVHCs to the SCIP database.

The idea behind SCIP is that to successfully develop a circular economy and enable recycling, hazardous chemicals must be removed from materials. The data requirements for the SCIP database are more extensive and complex than those of REACH Article 33 and require substantial amounts of information from the supply chain, which presents a huge challenge for industry.

Learn how to meet your SCIP requirements with this online course that you can access now.
