Waste Framework Directive - SCIP database

Timelines

From which date should information be communicated to ECHA?

As from 5 January 2021, information on articles containing SVHCs (on the Candidate List) in a concentration above 0.1% w/w placed on the EU market needs to be notified to ECHA.

According to Article 9(1)(i) of the WFD, suppliers should provide to ECHA the information pursuant to Article 33(1) of REACH Regulation from 5 January 2021 onwards. The WFD entered into force on 4 July 2018 and will have to be transposed into national law by Member States by 5 July 2020. Member States should ensure national rules are in place to oblige all suppliers to provide information to ECHA from 5 January 2021

The information requirements of the database are available on the ECHA website in order to guarantee full transparency towards the stakeholders, allow sufficient time to adapt their IT systems, where necessary, and enable them to prepare their notifications in due time before 5 January 2021.
