SGS Comprehensive Solutions for REACH SVHC & SCIP Database
Electronic and electrical products contain a number of hazardous substances, which can impact human health and the environment through all stages of the life-cycle.
To address the problems associated with exposure to chemical substances, most notable are the policy developments in the European Union where the RoHS and WEEE directives and the REACH regulation have had a strong impact on the way electronic products are designed, how they are collected and treated at end-of-life, and how information on hazardous substances is generated and shared.
Substances of Concern In articles as such or in complex objects (Products), or SCIP, was launched in October 2021 to ensure that sufficient information about the presence of SVHCs is communicated throughout the whole life cycle of products and materials placed in the EU market.
Since the enforcement, over 24 million notifications from 7600 entities were received, which include:
