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.
