EU – ECHA Hosts SCIP Workshop

On November 12, 2019, ECHA hosted a workshop in Helsinki on the upcoming SCIP database. The workshop included several presentations from ECHA including an overview of the database, reporting requirements, data format, and protection of CBI, an industry presentation on global supply chains, a presentation on the view from waste operations, and an NGO presentation on use cases for the presentation.  Several challenging questions and use cases were raised that ECHA said they will need to investigate. These included reporting challenges associated with multiple sources of suppliers parts and what happens when a product has multiple configurations that impact the number of articles with SVHCs.
