Preparing for submissions to the ECHA SVHC database

This webinar provided an overview of the reporting requirement for the new ECHA REACH Candidate List Database and explain how your company can input into the development of the new IPC-1752B supply chain standard.

The Waste Framework Directive (WFD) requires the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) to establish the new REACH Candidate List database by 5 January 2020.  EU Member States are required to transpose the WFD requirements into national laws by 5 July 2020.  The first submission deadline for industry is 5 January 2021, with possible subsequent enforcement by Member State regulatory authorities.

To help industry respond to these challenging timelines, IPC is developing the new IPC-1752B supply chain data exchange standard.  This new industry standard will help companies to collect the necessary information from their supply chains so that they can start reporting into the ECHA database from the January 2021 deadline for any products which include articles that contain REACH Candidate List substances above 0.1%.  

Following an open industry meeting in Brussels on 2 October to discuss the first working draft IPC-1752B standard, IPC plans to issue the Final Draft for Industry Review on 27 November so that industry comments can be addressed at the US IPC committee meeting on 3 February in San Diego.  The proposed Standard for Ballot will be issued in March 2020 so that the final standard can be published in June 2020.  This would allow 6 months for companies to use the new IPC-1752B standard to collect the first round of data from their supply chains so that they can make their first submissions to the database in January 2021. 

IPC would like to get as much industry consultation as possible on the new IPC-1752B standard.  Participation in the standards development process is open to all organisations and is free-of-charge.  Your company does not need to be a member of IPC for you to attend the standards development meetings and engage in the standards development process.”
