amfori Supports: New Database on Substances of Very High Concern in Articles



How this database will affect you

From 5 January 2021, all manufacturers, importers and distributors selling products on the EU market will have to provide more information on Substances of Very High Concern (SVHCs) present in their articles.  Manufacturers and importers whose products contain more than 0.1% of SVHCs, weight by weight will be obliged to submit information.

This development comes in addition to the existing REACH article 33 declaration and importation notifications. This information will need to be entered in the new Substances of Concern in articles, as such or in complex objects (products) database (SCIP). This database is currently being built by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) and we are requesting your views on how we can support you with this new reporting requirement.

Tight Timelines and High Degree of Detail Required

Our current activities monitoring this legislation

To continue monitoring the database’s development and to discuss the practicalities of such a database, amfori participated in a dedicated workshop organised by ECHA on the 12 November. The recordings of the workshop’s sessions are available online.
