SGS to host complimentary webinar – an ‘Introduction to the SCIP Database’

SGS, the world’s leading inspection,
verification, testing and certification company, is to host a live webinar on
March 18 providing delegates with an ‘Introduction to the SCIP Database.’

Introduced on January 5, 2021, a new
mandatory requirement from the Waste Framework Directive and REACH regulation
for EU duty holders, demands
any article being placed on the EU market which contains a
substance of very high concern (SVHC) must be declared to ECHA, the European
Chemicals Agency, via the SCIP database.

Aimed at all non-EU article suppliers and
EU duty holders, including importers, assemblers, producers and dist
the webinar will provide greater understanding of the new SCIP Database and offer delegates practical support on
submitting data.

The Database provides waste operators with comprehensive
information about the hazardous substances in the waste they process, better
enabling the material to be ‘cleaned’, then recycled or reused in the
production of new articles. In addition, it will allow consumers to make better
informed decisions on the products they purchase.

SGS speakers, Tiffany Tsui, Technical Services Executive –
Electrical & Electronics, and Richie Chang, Technical Manager of
C&P/RSTS, will introduce participants to the basic purpose and requirements
of the SCIP Database, define who is a duty holder, advise on what data must be
submitted and provide practical tips on how. The webinar will conclude with a Q&A
