Our virtual Echa Scip Database Cross-sector Conference gave attendees the chance to hear the latest updates and advice on reporting requirements for the Echa substances of concern in products (Scip) database.

Using a mix of presentations, discussion panels and Q&A sessions, the conference welcomed experts from Echa, IPC, Chemsec, Hyundai Motor Europe Technical Centre, Dassault Systèmes and more shared their advice, experiences and best practices for the Scip database. Topics that were explored included: 

  • Echa's perspective and updates;
