Starting January 5th, 2021, all companies supplying products in the European Union are required to report information into the new ECHA Substances of Concern in Products (SCIP) database about any products that include any articles that contain REACH candidate list substances above 0.1%.
The acronym REACH stands for the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals. REACH is a European Union Regulation (No 1907/2006) which is intended to improve the protection of human health and the environment through the identification and use of certain chemicals and chemical substances.
The reporting requirement applies to all companies in the supply chain, including the original article supplier, suppliers of subassemblies and assemblies that contain affected articles, the supplier of the finished product that contains affected articles, and resellers and distributors who supply the finished product to retailers.
