  3. On 14 September 2021, the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) published the SCIP Database (“Substances of Concern in Articles, as such or in Complex Objects (Products)” Database), which enabled public to search for information of SVHC (substances of very high concern) contained in products placed on the EU markets.

    Around 6 000 companies across the European Union have successfully complied with their new duty to notify ECHA about products containing substances of very high concern, SVHCs, (SCIP notficiation). The SCIP database now displays more than four million article notifications.  

    Based on the information submitted so far, the most commonly notified product categories in the database are: 
    Machinery and their parts; 
    Measuring instruments and their parts; 
    Electronic equipment and their parts; 
    Vehicles and their parts; 
    Articles made of rubber; and 

    The most common substances of very high concern in notifications are: 
    Lead (e.g. in ball bearings, batteries); 
    Lead monoxide (e.g. in lamps, vehicle parts); 
    Lead titanium trioxide (e.g. in electric cookers); 
    Silicid acid, lead salt (e.g. in lead crystalware, vehicle coatings); and
