Companies can now access data from the EU’s first public database of substances of very high concern in products, SCIP. The SCIP database now displays more than four million article notifications.

It aims to allow consumers to make more informed purchasing choices and help waste operators to further develop the re-use of articles and the recycling of materials.

ECHA announced today, that around 6 000 companies across the European Union have successfully complied with their new duty to notify ECHA about products containing substances of very high concern, SVHCs. The SCIP database now displays more than four million article notifications.

Based on the information submitted so far, the most commonly notified product categories in the database are:

  • machinery and their parts;
  • measuring instruments and their parts;
  • electronic equipment and their parts;
  • vehicles and their parts;
  • articles made of rubber; and
  • furniture.

The most common substances of very high concern in notifications are:

  • lead (e.g. in ball bearings, batteries);
  • lead monoxide (e.g. in lamps, vehicle parts);
  • lead titanium trioxide (e.g. in electric cookers);
  • silicid acid, lead salt (e.g. in lead crystalware, vehicle coatings); and
  • 1,6,7,8,9,14,15,16,17,17,18,18-Dodecachloropentacyclo[12.2.1.16,9.02,13.05,10] octadeca-7,15- diene, more commonly referred to as “Dechlorane PlusTM” (e.g. in paints, glues)
