SCIP Workshop
The Database of Substances of Concern In articles as such or in complex objects (Products)

Closing Date For Registrations: 11 November 2020 (midnight)

SCIP Database

The SCIP database has been established in accordance with the requirements of Article 9(1)(i) of the Waste framework Directive (WFD), which requires any supplier of an article to provide information on the presence of substances of high concern (SVHC).

Companies supplying articles containing substances of very high concern (SVHCs) on the Candidate List in a concentration above 0.1% weight by weight (w/w) on the EU market have to submit information on these articles to ECHA, as from 5 January 2021. The SCIP database ensures that the information on articles containing Candidate List substances is available throughout the whole lifecycle of products and materials, including at the waste stage. The information in the database is then made available to waste operators and consumers.


The ECHA notification portal will go live in October 2020. Notifications a legal requirement from 5 January 2021.

Our Training 

This training course / workshop will cover:

  • what needs to be notified
  • the deadlines
  • information required in the notification
  • tools - ECHA submission portal - walk-through
  • Member State Implementation
  • guidance and sources of information

By the end of this session you will be able to make notifications to the SCIP database using the new harmonised format in the ECHA portal.

Who Should Attend?
This module is aimed at those taking on responsibilities for the notifications of SVHC’s in articles and complex objects to ECHA. Companies who produce, assemble, import or distribute articles, that contain above 0.1% weight by weight of a substance of very high concern (SVHC) Candidate List Substance will need to make a notification to the SCIP database.

What You Will Learn

This module aims to provide practical information on how to complete SCIP notifications.

Module Tutor

This module will be presented by Caroline Raine. Caroline is a chemical legislation expert, with experience of interpreting and implementing EU legislation relating to hazardous chemicals. The knowledge Caroline has of legislation is wide ranging, covering both supply and transport legislation. Caroline has been participating in working groups with ECHA and has an excellent understanding of the forthcoming requirements. Caroline is also a Council member of the CHCS.

EU Brexit

The requirement to notify to the SCIP database will still be a legal requirement in the EU. It is likely that UK will not adopt the new requirement.

Module Presentation

We will deliver this training using online presentation software, which we have used successfully for other CHCS events and training. You can use the software, free-of-charge on Windows, Macs, smartphones and tablets.

The workshop will run live and delegates can interact with the tutor and other delegates using their device microphone. The tutor will use a PowerPoint presentation, just as they would in face-to-face training. We will provide you with copies of the presentation and all other supporting documentation in advance of the training, by email.

Participants will need to have access to a REACH-IT account. (i.e. need laptop/tablet).

If you do not have a REACH-IT account we suggest setting one up, otherwise you can have access on the day to a training account.
