A new mandatory requirement of the Waste Framework Directive and REACH regulation for EU duty holders demands that any article placed on the EU market containing a SVHC must be declared to ECHA, the European Chemicals Agency, via the new SCIP database.
While providing a huge boost to the circular economy, for many industry stakeholders this will be a daunting challenge!
That’s why we’re pleased to host a live webinar to help non-EU article suppliers and EU duty holders, such as importers, assemblers, producers and distributors, better understand the purpose of the database and gain practical support on submitting data.
About the SCIP Database
The SCIP Database provides waste operators with comprehensive information about hazardous substances in the waste they process, enabling the material to be ‘cleaned’, then recycled or reused in the production of new articles. In addition, it allows consumers to make better informed decisions on the products they purchase.
The one-hour webinar will cover the following:
- Purpose of SCIP Database
- Comparison between LifeASK, REACH and ECHA SCIP
- Duty holders & information user
- Trigger points & article centric
- SCIP data requirements
- How to submit the i6z file
- Combining submission
- SGS solution
The webinar will conclude with Q&As, giving you the chance to ask questions of our speakers.
Tiffany Tsui, Technical Services Executive – Electrical & Electronics, and Richie Chang, Technical Manager of C&P/RSTS, will introduce participants to the basic purpose and requirements of the SCIP Database, define who is a duty holder, advise on what data must be submitted and provide practical tips on how.
We will host two sessions for this webinar:
Session 1 – 10:00 AM Hong Kong Standard Time (GMT +8)
Session 2 – 10:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time (GMT – 5)
