Updates to Compliance Users' EU REACH Determinations to Support SCIP
For ongoing 3E Exchange compliance users, they will see some updates in their account. For one, the requirements for importers under the EU REACH regulation are now broken into two different REACH determinations, as seen below.
The EU REACH Authorization List evaluates the chemicals in your products and against the Authorization List - Annex XIV of REACH. Those are SVHCs (Substances of Very High Concern) that have been flagged for further restriction. They cannot be placed on the market unless authorization is granted for their specific use.
The EU REACH Candidate List & SCIP evaluates the chemicals in your products against the Candidate List of substances of very high concern for Authorization, published in accordance with Article 59(10) of the REACH Regulation. If the Candidate list substances are present in your product about 0.1% by weight, they require notification to the EU in the SCIP database, and further notification requirements if your company imports more than 1 ton per year.
Products that were listed as compliant with the previous general REACH determination, have now been migrated to being compliant with the REACH Candidate List and unknown for the Authorization List.
Each regulation can now be marked as applicable to the product or material. For example, if there is only a subset of your products that you sell in the EU or California, you can mark only those products having applicability to that regulation.
