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?

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

Submission Validation

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

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.
