EU suppliers have been eagerly awaiting the launch of the dissemination portal, to view how their SCIP dossiers are presented to the public and waste operators. However, ECHA has announced that the launch will be delayed and no revised timeline has been provided.
Suppliers are currently relying on the ECHA guidance document to ensure that confidential business information is protected. The auditing of dossiers is also largely dependent on this portal being available. Compliance Map encourages all suppliers to review the data submitted carefully to ensure that it meets the requirements for communicating SVHCs in articles and that no images, instructions or other information is submitted that will disclose links in the supply chain.
