ECHA has released a SCIP database prototype for users to test


The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has released a prototype of the EU REACH SCIP database portal for companies to become familiar with ahead of the January 2021 effective date.

Companies placing articles on the EU market which contain reportable levels of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHCs) will need to submit their product information into the SCIP database starting January 5, 2021.

The release of the portal prototype provides manufacturers and solution providers with the remainder of this year to develop a solution and gather the required product information.

Users can use the prototype portal to submit test data and provide feedback to ECHA to improve the final version, which will be launched later this year. The prototype database is for testing purposes only, and all data loaded into the database will be deleted when the final database goes live in fall 2020.

You can access the SCIP database prototype portal here.

Additionally, Chemical Watch is hosting a webinar about the SCIP database portal on March 5. Speakers from ECHA will share suggested steps on how to utilize the database. More information and registration for that webinar can be found here.

SCIP database expands data requirements for manufacturers

Manufacturers will be required to submit significantly more information to the SCIP database than the current SVHC communication obligations under Article 33 of EU REACH.

Suppliers of articles will need to submit the following information to the SCIP database:

  • Information that allows the article to be identified
  • The name, concentration range, and location of the SVHC in the article
  • Information on the safe use of the article, including during disposal
  • Material Category of the material containing the SVHC

The detailed information requirements for the SCIP database (published September 9, 2019) can be accessed here.
