SGS Hosts Webinar for Electrical and Electronic Industry on SCIP Database

SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection and
certification company, is hosting a live webinar on September 21, 2021, “Everything
E&E Brands Need to Know About the ECHA SCIP Database.”

The Substances of Concern In articles as such, or in
complex objects (Products) (SCIP) database is a ‘hot’ topic right now as it
aims to improve transparency on hazardous substances in articles and promote
the substitution of hazardous chemicals and a circular economy.

The SCIP database, established under the Waste Framework
Directive 2008/98/EC (WFD), requires any supplier of an article containing a
Candidate List substance (SVHC) in a concentration above 0.1% (w/w) on the EU
market to submit information on that article to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA),
as from January 5, 2021. The SCIP database ensures that the information on
articles containing Candidate List substances is available throughout the whole
life cycle of products and materials, including at the waste stage.

Mr Freddie Chen, SGS
Technical S
upervisor responsible for chemical testing and compliance solutions, will share with
participants how to effectively and successfully submit the required
information, including details of the i6z file, the triggering point and duty
holder responsibilities.
