SCIP - new information obligations on substances in articles from the EU Waste Framework Directive (WFD)

As of January 5, 2021, suppliers of articles containing substances listed in the REACH Candidate List (Substances of Very High Concern) in a concentration above 0.1 percent by weight are obliged to provide the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) with the information according to REACH Art. 33 (1). These new requirements arise from Article 9 (1) i) of the EU WFD and have been implemented into German law within the framework of § 16f of the Chemicals Act (ChemG).

When transmitting information via the SCIP database ("Substances of Concern In articles as such or in complex objects (Products)") database, detailed information is required on articles and their ingredients, the scope of which exceeds the requirements of Article 33 (1) of the REACH Regulation.

The joint association information prepared by the ZVEI in cooperation with other trade associations describes the options, tasks and obligations of the companies concerned from today's point of view and provides assistance in implementing § 16f ChemG.

Together with other associations, we continue to exchange information with politicians and authorities in order to shape the new requirements in a feasible manner.

The information provided by the associations represents a "living document" that is continuously adapted to the current state and knowledge.
