What is this request about?
The European Union (EU) Waste Framework Directive (WFD) (2008/98/EC) was originally implemented to protect the environment and human health by preventing or reducing the adverse impacts of waste generation and management. The EU WFD was updated in 2018, mandating the creation of the SCIP database (Substances of Concern In articles, as such or in complex objects (Products)).
This request is about providing additional information for parts/products that contain SVHC’s above the 0.1% w/w threshold.
How do I start?
The only way you can currently provide the requested information to your client is by following the personal portal link that was sent to you in our sendout. The parts/products that you supply to your client are listed in your portal. If the parts/products don’t contain any SVHC’s, the request will be complete after you provide REACH SVHC declarations. If the parts/products do contain SVHC’s above threshold, your client needs more information about the parts/products, as they need to provide that information to the SCIP database before the parts/products can be placed on the EU market.
Why is my customer asking me for this information?
Your client is asking you for this information because they need your help to submit all currently available article-level information to the SCIP database for all parts/products that contain SVHCs above the 0.1% w/w threshold. This information has to be submitted to the SCIP database by January 5, 2021 before the parts/products can be placed on the EU market.
In summary, your customer needs this information from you in order to import their parts/products into the EU and place them on the EU market.
