SCIP stands for the database for information on Substances of Concern In articles as such or in complex objects (Products) established under the European Waste Framework Directive (WFD) and was developed as part of the implementation of the EU’s action plan for the circular economy.
Companies supplying articles containing substances of very high concern (SVHCs) on the Candidate List in a concentration above 0.1% weight by weight (w/w) on the EU market have to submit information on these articles to ECHA, as from 5 January 2021.
ECFIA member companies produce various articles containing Refractory Ceramic Fibre / Alumino Silicate Wool, which was placed on the Candidate List in 2010 under two entries, Refractory Ceramic Fibre and Zirconia Refractory Ceramic Fibre. Based on this, ECFIA members will be submitting notifications to the SCIP database and communicating this information down the supply chain as per their legal obligations. All ECFIA members will use the same article category and material categories for classification of the use of the RCF containing articles to ensure waste operators find consistent information at the end of life.
Distributors and resellers may be able to submit a “simplified” notification, referencing the upstream full notification using the ECHA submission portal.
