SCIP Format

The SCIP format structures the information on articles that contain Candidate List substances in a concentration above 0.1 % w/w that has to be submitted to ECHA.

The format is XML-based and defined by taking into account the legal text of WFD Article 9(1)(i), REACH Article 33(1), Commission’s “Non-paper on the implementation of articles 9(1)(i) and 9(2) of the revised Waste Framework Directive 2008/98/EC”, and ECHA’s Guidance on requirements for substances in articles (ECHA’s SiA Guidance).

The SCIP format is compatible with IUCLID, a tool developed by ECHA in collaboration with the OECD, which promotes the harmonisation of chemicals data. You can find additional information about this tool on the IUCLID website.


To help with the IT implementation of this format, the following is available:
