Event - Detail

  • Online session “SCIP Database – How to comply with the Waste Framework Directive on SVHC in your articles”

    The REACH&CLP Helpdesk Luxembourg, in collaboration with the Betriber&Emwelt platform, organises an online conference on how to get ready for the SCIP database notification. This online event will take place on the 23rd of September 2020 from 14:00 to 16:20.

SCIP is the database for information on Substances of Concern In articles as such or in complex objects (Products) established under the last amendment of the Waste Framework Directive (WFD) published in 2018. As from 5 January 2021, companies supplying articles containing substances of very high concern (SVHCs) in a concentration above 0.1% weight by weight (w/w) on the EU market will have to submit information on these articles to ECHA through the SCIP database.

The REACH&CLP Helpdesk Luxembourg offers this introductory session to help companies comply with their upcoming SCIP notification obligation, which is aimed to ‘ensure that the information about the presence of SVHCs is available throughout the whole life cycle of products and materials, including at the waste stage’. These obligations complement the already existing obligations under REACH (communication, registration and notification obligations under Articles 33, 7(1) and 7(2) REACH). Therefore, the Helpdesk will also refer to the AskREACH database and how it helps you to prepare for your SCIP database notification.

As usual, the participants will also have the opportunity to ask their questions to the experts.


This event is addressed to any company producing or supplying articles on the EU market that may contain substances of very high concern (SVHCs), including importers, and recycling operators.


The presentations will be held in English.
