Are you importing, manufacturing, assembling or distributing articles in the European Economic Area (EEA) market? If yes, you should prepare for the upcoming obligation to notify articles that contain a Substance of Very High Concern (SVHC) listed on the REACH candidate list in concentrations above 0.1% (w/w) to the SCIP database. Be aware that there is no tonnage threshold – even if you sell just one such article, you will have to notify. This obligation will apply from 5 January 2021.
You are unsure whether your articles contain any SVHC? knoell can help you with a portfolio assessment or can support your supply chain communication. Don’t forget: ECHA’s candidate list of SVHC is constantly growing: Only recently (25 June 2020) four more substances were added to the list, now containing 209 substances in total. Therefore, it is important to constantly re-evaluate your product portfolio.
Even though the SCIP notification will not be mandatory before 5 January 2021, you should make sure that there are no shipping delays for your products early next year due to products that have not been notified yet. Better start with the notification in October 2020, when the SCIP database will be fully available. knoell can assist you with evaluating if you have any obligations and in collecting the information needed, dossier preparation in IUCLID as well as dossier submission to ECHA.
More information on our services can be found in our fact sheet on services regading the SCIP database.
From 5 January 2021, notification needs to be available as soon as the product is put on the EEA market.
