Consumers and SCIP

Under the REACH Regulation, consumers have a “right to know” about substances of very high concern in the products they buy.

SCIP is a new database for consumers on hazardous chemicals in products to encourage substitution of harmful substances.

The increased transparency on hazardous substances will help consumers to make better informed choices when buying products and provides information on how to best use and dispose of such products.


Chemicals in a circular economy

A circular economy is about  how we use, re-use and dispose of materials, how we minimise waste and how we make the most of resources. The use of hazardous chemicals should be reduced in products life cycle.
