Webinar: Meeting Requirements for the EU SCIP Database

June 30, 2021, 11:30am EST – FREE

Companies around the world, including in the U.S., are impacted by a new regulatory requirement to submit data to the European SCIP (substances of concern in products) database.  Registration for the SCIP database is mandatory for companies based in Europe and will also affect U.S. exporters.

Companies making any product – electrical or non-electrical – that contains any of the approximately 200 substances of very high concern (SVHCs) cited in the REACH regulation will have to register this product with the SCIP database and might need to show a SCIP ID number in order to do business in the EU.  U.S. companies with branch offices in Europe will have to register products directly into the SCIP database.  U.S. exporters will be asked by their European customers for product information so the European buyer can meet SCIP database requirements.

Please join the U.S. Department of Commerce and the U.S. Mission to the EU Wednesday June 30 for one or both of our 45 minute sessions guiding companies through the SCIP reporting requirements, including how to enter data into the SCIP database.  Representatives from the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) will lead the sessions.  ECHA devised and oversees the operation of the SCIP database so there are no better experts.  The first session is for companies just learning about SCIP or for companies that want to review the regulation.  The second session is for more advanced users — companies which have been entering information into the database and might have some specific issues with the database.  The program starts at 8:30 am Pacific time, 11:30 am Eastern time, and 5:30 pm Central European Time.  Companies are welcome to attend one or both sessions.  There is no charge.
