SCIP notification - Part 2

In the second part of this blog (the first part is available here), we will focus on three things.

Firstly, the data you need to provide to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA for short). Secondly, the process of completing the SCIP notification. And thirdly, which of these pieces of information are visible and accessible to the public.

What information do you need to provide to the ECHA?

In the SCIP database, you must provide information that allows the identification of the product, including its name, concentration range, and the identifier of SVHC substances.

Additionally, you must submit additional information that ensures the safe use of the product, particularly regarding waste handling.

How can you perform SCIP notification?

When submitting data to the SCIP database via the IUCLID program, you have two approaches:

  1. Online preparation of the notification via the ECHA Cloud

    This method allows you to prepare notifications directly in the SCIP database through the cloud version of the IUCLID program. The cloud service is suitable for those who want to manually prepare notifications and may not be the most proficient users of the IUCLID program. Users can prepare their notifications through the IUCLID Cloud service, providing easy access via the web.
  2. Using the IUCLID 6 program via a server and desktop computer.

    With this method, you submit the notification to the SCIP database without a direct web connection, but instead, you use the program on your company's own IT infrastructure. This approach is more suitable for experienced IUCLID program users and is especially useful for those who want to maintain control over their data and the notification preparation process.

Regardless of the chosen approach, each company must obtain a valid user account from ECHA for using the IUCLID program. This account allows access to the necessary program functions and ensures compliance with ECHA's requirements for submissions to the SCIP database.

Now, let's move on to the third part, which is probably of the most interest to you.

Which information submitted to the SCIP database will be published/made publicly accessible by ECHA?

You must be aware that the information submitted to the SCIP database will be publicly accessible. This will enable waste operators immediate access to this information, contributing to filling current gaps in the flow of information.

ECHA will also publish this information on its website, taking care to protect confidential data when necessary. We are mainly talking about data that allows the identification of participants in the supply chain. This information will not be publicly accessible.

And that concludes this 2-part SCIP blog post.
