SCIP Database Explained


7/3/20231 min read

Be compliant with the SCIP Database. Everything you need to know, plus a tip for non-EU companies.

πŸ“Œ If you manufacture products in the EU or place products on the EU market, you have obligations.

πŸ“Œ Only articles are in scope. You don’t need to submit a notification for substances or mixtures.

πŸ“Œ Do not forget about packaging! It is in scope as well!

πŸ“Œ If your product has one or more components that contain a substance of very high concern above 0,1% (find the substances list in the comments) you need to submit a notification.

πŸ“Œ Prepare your notification in IUCLID and submit it on the ECHA submission portal. Other submissions are not accepted.

As a non-EU company selling to the EU, you don’t have obligations under the SCIP database, but you must provide all the information your importers need to meet their obligations.
