… we are on a good way

The SCIP registration keeps us busy and we have been in contact with several Service Providers who can support us with this upcoming regulation. At the end we decided on a collaboration with Verisk 3E since they can offer us a full service. This means taking over the supplier communication on the behalf of Würth for the articles which contain SVHC and make sure that the affected articles are registered in the SCIP database.

In a first step we started with the supplier communication for the AWKG articles. The idea is to start with AWKG and then to share the experiences made with the EU subsidiaries. We also recognized that many EU subsidiaries do not know which articles actually contain SVHC. These subsidiaries must also fulfill their duties and ensure that their local suppliers provide the necessary information to them.

As soon as we have completed the registration of the AWKG items we will carry on with the registrations of WINT-CH and AWKG Export articles, which the subsidiaries purchases from the group, as well as your local articles.

We need to work on this task step by step, since each subsidiary has also to create an own ECHA account (as distributor) and provide us the required information, e.g. supplier information, contact person, the articles which contains SVHC etc.

Please make sure that you collect the required information from your local suppliers of articles (chemical items are excluded) as soon as possible. We will get in contact with you as soon as we will be ready to register the WINT-CH, AWKG Export and local articles in collaboration with Verisk 3E and the corresponding subsidiary.

Please do not hesitate to contact us in case you have any further questions.

The new SCIP database

The EU subsidiaries will be affected by a new EU legislation (SCIP database) which takes in force on January 5th, 2021. For a better understanding of this SCIP notification please watch the video in the link below.




Am I affected? 

The obligation to submit a SCIP notification covers all articles placed on the EU market containing a substance of very high concern on the Candidate List in a concentration above 0.1 % w/w.

The following suppliers of articles need to provide information to ECHA:

  • EU producers and assemblers,
  • EU importers,
  • EU distributors of articles and other actors in the supply chain placing articles on the market.

We analyzed the role of our EU-subsidiary within this new regulation. A Würth EU subsidiary is a RETAILER if it purchases articles from EU suppliers, but as soon as it imports articles from outside of the EU – means from a non-EU supplier, it is an IMPORTER and due to this reason the EU subsidiaries must comply with the following legislation:

All EU Würth subsidiaries, which place articles containing SVHC’s (on the Candidate List) in a concentration above 0.1% w/w on the EU market have to notify the articles, which are purchased from a non-EU supplier, to ECHA from January 5th, 2021!


For further information please also reach ECHA’s report below:


The SCIP regulation affects only your articles – no chemicals!

Together with the EU subsidiaries we are working on receiving a confirmation from all non-EU suppliers that our articles do not contain any SVHC substance in a concentration above 0.1% w/w.
