SCIP Compliance: A New Requirement for EU Companies
In January 2021, new rules were introduced under the updated EU Waste Framework Directive (WFD). Companies selling into the EU must now survey their supply chains and submit data on the substances in their products to the Substances of Concern In articles, as such or in complex objects (Products) (SCIP) database. SCIP compliance is essential to keeping European market access and avoiding fines. Is your company ready to meet its requirements?
Assent has helped hundreds of companies. We’re proud to work with the following organizations.
The Risks of SCIP Non-Compliance
Preparing and submitting SCIP dossiers is no easy task. Scoping products and getting the necessary data takes time and money, and staying on top of frequent regulatory changes — and changes in your product — can be a challenge. If you can’t keep up, you may face fines or product stoppage at customs — and if your employees are spending too much time on compliance activities, you may be losing out on revenue as well.
Additionally, NGOs, consumers, regulators, and waste operators will have visibility into your product composition data. This could present reputational risk if your data is inaccurate or missing.

Our SCIP Solution Capabilities
Assent’s SCIP solution validates supplier data submissions and generates dossiers for upload to the SCIP database, helping you achieve compliance in just a few clicks.
Robust Data Management
Meeting SCIP requirements can involve managing data for hundreds, or millions, of parts. Assent’s solution has the capacity to ingest and store large volumes of data — all in one convenient location.
Supplier engagement is essential to getting the data you need to show compliance. Assent provides a dedicated data submission portal and supplier support, such as training in local languages, to keep suppliers up to date on your requirements.
Automated Data Collection
Our solution aligns with the latest REACH Candidate List of substances of very high concern (SVHCs). When bundled with Assent’s REACH SVHC solution, SCIP data collection is automatically triggered when a product containing an in-scope SVHC is entered into the Assent system.
Comprehensive dashboards and reports show compliance status in real time, ensuring you have the deep insights you need to identify high-risk parts and take informed corrective action.
A Central Database
Assent’s vast database of parts makes it easy to manage all your data in one place, reducing the need to make multiple data requests and minimizing supplier fatigue.
The Assent Advantage
Assent doesn’t just provide software solutions — we also give you the support and guidance you need for program success. Our team of subject matter experts is one of the most diverse in the industry, and their participation in the working group that helped develop SCIP means you’ll always have access to the latest news about the database.
