Towards circular economy: test our database to track harmful chemicals in products

Companies can now start to test ECHA’s SCIP database of products containing Candidate List substances of very high concern. The final database will be launched later this year. Companies will need to submit information to it from January 2021 onwards.

February Newsletter now online

Our February issue includes articles on harmful chemicals in baby nappies, action being taken to speed up the biocides Review Programme, the upcoming launch of the SCIP database prototype and much more.

Is your company size declared correctly?

ECHA will soon verify the size of micro, small and medium-sized companies (SMEs) that have registered substances between 2016 and 2019 under REACH and benefitted from reduced fees. Check that you declared your enterprise’s size correctly and have uploaded the documents in REACH-IT.
