SCIP Database Service

Support in the implementation of your reporting obligations

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:

  1. Reduce the generation of waste containing hazardous substances by supporting the substitution of substances of concern in articles placed on the Union market.
  2. Providing information that can be used to further improve waste management.
  3. 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.
