The Database of Substances of Concern In articles as such or in complex objects (Products)
Closing Date For Registrations: 11 November 2020 (midnight)
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.
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.
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.
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.
