EU – changes in the EU law new reporting obligations for new EU register – SCIP (Substances of Concern In Products) as from 5 of January 2021

Companies supplying articles containing substances of high concern (SVHCs) on the Candidate List in a concentration above 0.1% weight by weight (w/w) on the EU market have will have to submit information on these articles to new EU register –  SCIP (Substances of Concern In Products) as from 5 January 2021.  Lead (which is widely used in electronics) is also among these substances. Thus, each article Lead (or the substance itself) must be submitted in this register. Please analyse the list of substances in order to understand if you face additional reporting obligation.

The three main goals of the SCIP database:

  1. Reduce the production of waste containing hazardous substances by helping to replace hazardous substances in articles placed on the EU market
  2. Sharing information to help further improve waste treatment operations
  3. Enable authorities to monitor the use of hazardous substances in articles and initiate appropriate actions at all stages of the life cycle of articles, including the waste stage  

Failure to enter this information may result in high financial penalties.
