SCIP and Products Without SVHCs

Question: If a company does not manufacture any products that exceed the Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) concentration threshold, is that company required to submit data to the Substances of Concern In articles, as such or in complex objects (Products) (SCIP) database?

Answer: If it can be confirmed that none of the component articles in their products have any SVHC content over the 0.1 percent weight-by-weight threshold (at the article level), then there is no need to submit information to the SCIP database. When making this type of determination, it’s important to understand that the EU Waste Framework Directive (WFD) SCIP reporting threshold is at the lowest-level article, not the finished product itself.
