SCIP: ECHA Has Received 5 Million Notifications to Date

As of January 4, manufacturers and importers must notify the ECHA when they want to market products containing substances of very high concern (SVHC) in a concentration greater than or equal to 0.1% by weight. Such notifications are required by Article 9, Section 1, Letter i of the EU Waste Framework Directive

So far, more than 5 million notifications have been submitted to the SCIP (Substances of Concern In articles as such or in Products) database, as the European Chemicals Agency reported in a press release on January 11.  

Over the next few months, the ECHA wants to publish the data to bring transparency into the  
supply chain and move toward recycling processes that are free of hazardous pollutants. In the press release, ECHA executive director Björn Hansen praised companies that have already met their notification obligation and thereby contributed to a safe circular economy. 

For an overview of how individual countries have already implemented the EU Waste Framework Directive and notified the EU Commission, see #No Time To Waste, published in November.
