Helsinki, 14 September 2021 – Around 6 000 companies across the European Union have successfully complied with their new duty to notify ECHA about products containing substances of very high concern, SVHCs. The SCIP database now displays more than four million article notifications.
The most common substances of very high concern in notifications are:
(*) lead (e.g. in ball bearings, batteries);
(*) lead monoxide (e.g. in lamps, vehicle parts);
(*) lead titanium trioxide (e.g. in electric cookers);
(*) Silicic acid, lead salt (e.g. in lead crystalware, vehicle coatings); and
(*) 1,6,7,8,9,14,15,16,17,17,18,18-Dodecachloropentacyclo[184.108.40.206,9.02,13.05,10]octadeca-7,15- diene, more commonly referred to as “ Dechlorane PlusTM” (e.g. in paints, glues)
You can search the data by article name or brand, product category, type of material or the chemical name. The data will help consumers make informed choices by checking whether a product contains hazardous chemicals and reading its safe use instructions. Waste operators can use the data to increase the re-use of articles and further develop recycling processes.
