In order to reduce the volume of updates in the SCIP database, the database operator ECHA (European Chemicals Agency) recently issued an information sheet stating that unnecessary updates, such as uploading irrelevant information or information with the same content should be avoided as far as possible. ECHA also points out that the quality of the SCIP data is the sole responsibility of the data submitter.
