The aim of the workshop is to discuss and share information on the practical implementation of the European Chemicals Agency, ECHA's upcoming SCIP database on hazardous substances in articles in order to develop and improve the database in the future.
According to the EU Waste Framework Directive, anyone who supplies goods containing more than 0,1% of any substance on the candidate list must report these substances to the new SCIP database at ECHA. It is a rule that comes into force on January 5, 2021.
In this workshop, ECHA invites duty holders to a discussion on how the database should work to make it as easy as possible to report substances and products to the database. They also want to discuss how the information should be easily made available to waste companies and private individuals.
The workshop will be held at ECHA's premises in Helsinki and will also be streamed via the web.
European Chemicals Agency, Annankatu 18, 00120 Helsinki or via ECHA's website.
