Priority question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 138
Alexandr Vondra (ECR), Carlo Fidanza (ECR)
 Subject: SCIP database

The SCIP database is being prepared by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) to consolidate information on Substances of Concern In articles as such or in complex objects (Products), as required by Article 9 of the Waste Framework Directive (WFD – Directive 2008/98/EC amended by Directive (EU) 2018/851).

Given the delay in the preparation process of the SCIP database by ECHA and the concerns expressed by industry and stakeholders, would the Commission be willing to grant a postponement of the database implementation deadline (5 January 2021) with a view to also better addressing and solving the open issues relating to SCIP usability, in particular for highly complex products?

Is the Commission planning to carry out an assessment to evaluate the burdens and costs of the SCIP database specifications added by ECHA, which go beyond the legal mandate laid down in Article 9(1) of the WFD and Article 33 of the Regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH)?

Is the Commission willing to endorse additional simplification proposals such as uploading data via the ‘model level’ or ‘representative article’ approach, as suggested by the stakeholders involved, to make the implementation more workable and proportionate?
