VELTEK har modtaget sidste nyt fra ECHA SCIP teamet;

Please be informed about the below latest news regarding the ECHA SCIP database – the database for information on Substances of Concern In articles as such or in complex objects (Products) established under the Waste Framework Directive (WFD). As a reminder, since 5 January 2021, companies are obliged to provide ECHA with information on articles containing substances listed in the REACH candidate list (so-called “Substances of Very High Concern” (SVHC)) in a concentration above 0.1% weight by weight (w/w).

Survey on the SCIP database

The ECHA SCIP team is performing an assessment on the SCIP database and a key element of it is the input of all SCIP stakeholders, from duty holders to waste operators, consumers, and authorities. They would like to hear feedback about the SCIP database and how they could improve it in the future. It takes 10-15 minutes to reply to the survey. The survey is anonymous. If you agree to a follow-up interview, they could arrange a short phone call to get a better understanding of your views. The deadline to participate is 25 March 2022.

 SCIP data published

 You can now access data from the SCIP Database. According to ECHA, the SCIP database displays 7 million searchable article notifications, from nearly 7 000 companies across the EU. Most notifications have come from companies in Germany, followed by Italy and France. This number counts duplicate notifications for the same article that were made by several actors in the EU supply chains, as well as notifications made for more than one article. Therefore, ECHA does not have an estimation for the exact number of different articles in the database. Moreover, many times the data is not entered properly (one example here).

Based on the information submitted so far, the most commonly notified product categories in the database are:

  • machinery and their parts;
  • measuring instruments and their parts;
  • electronic equipment and their parts;
  • vehicles and their parts;
  • articles made of rubber; and
  • furniture.

The most common substances of very high concern in notifications are:

  • lead (e.g. in ball bearings, batteries);
  • lead monoxide (e.g. in lamps, vehicle parts);
  • lead titanium trioxide (e.g. in electric cookers);
  • silicid acid, lead salt (e.g. in lead crystalware, vehicle coatings); and
  • 1,6,7,8,9,14,15,16,17,17,18,18-Dodecachloropentacyclo[12.2.1.16,9.02,13.05,10]octadeca-7,15- diene, more commonly referred to as “Dechlorane PlusTM” (e.g. in paints, glues)
