SCIP Reporting – The Obligation to Report is in Force Since 05th January 2021! 

SCIP is the EU database for collecting information on SVHC´s (Substances of Very High Concern) in articles and products.

It was established following the Waste Framework Directive (WFD) and aims to increase the knowledge of hazardous substances throughout the lifecycle of a product.

Companies that are supplying products/articles containing SVHC´s with a concentration above 0.1 % weight by weight are obliged to submit information on these products/articles to the SCIP database.

It aims to reduce the presence of hazardous substances in products and promote the substition with non-hazardous substances.

  • The article that is containing the SVHC (Article No.)
