SCIP: transparency on hazardous chemicals in products
Play • 13 min

The SCIP database aims to improve transparency on the use of substances of very high concern (SVHCs), also known as Candidate List substances, in all products on the EU market. It can help consumers to make more informed purchasing choices and waste operators to further develop the re-use of articles and the recycling of materials. It can also be seen as a driver for substitution to get these extremely hazardous substances out from products, wherever possible.

In this episode, we interview Kevin Pollard from the European Chemicals Agency. Kevin is Head of the Exposure and Supply Chain Unit which is the core unit for ECHA’s SCIP implementation. We talk about what the SCIP database is, who can benefit from it and what information can be found there.
