Since January 5, 2021, companies - which manufacture, import or supply products containing substances on the candidate list - are obliged to provide certain information.
This obligation results from the amendment of the Waste Framework Directive of July 4, 2018 (Directive 2018/851 amending Directive 2008/98/EC).
The database is operated by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) and serves three main objectives:
- Reduce the generation of waste containing hazardous substances by supporting the substitution of substances of concern in articles placed on the Union market.
- Providing information that can be used to further improve waste management.
- Enable authorities to monitor the use of substances of concern in articles throughout their life cycle, including the waste phase, and to take appropriate action.
