Access the SCIP Database FAQs Today!
GreenSoft Technology has published a set of over 30 Frequently Asked Questions with information for manufacturers and suppliers to guide you through the most common issues companies encounter when dealing with the SCIP Database.
As of January 2021, companies placing articles on the EU market which contain reportable levels of Substances of High Concern (SVHCs) under EU REACH will need to submit their product information into the Substances of Concern in Products (SCIP) Database as part of the requirements under the EU Waste Framework Directive (EU WFD).
This process requires significantly more information than EU REACH SVHC communication obligations, and can be challenging for affected companies due to lack of familiarity with SCIP on the part of suppliers.
Additionally, submitting SCIP dossiers to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) SCIP online portal contains its own set of challenges. Companies must be familiar with TARIC Codes, SCIP Reference IDs, SCIP Legal Entities, and other portal-related tasks.
GreenSoft Technology has been collecting SCIP data and making SCIP dossier submissions to the online portal on behalf of our customers since the start of these new SCIP requirements. We have compiled the lessons we’ve learned into a helpful Frequently Asked Questions format to help companies prepare and submit to the SCIP Database.
