The NRMM industries join forces to help shape the future of the Waste Database

Manufacturers of European garden and outdoor power equipment raised strong concerns on the development of the future Waste Database, so called SCIP database.

SCIP means substances of concern in articles, as such or in complex objects (products). This database has to be established by the European Chemicals Agency  further to the amendment to the Waste Framework Directive (2018/851/EU).

These concerns are shared by many other industry sectors. Therefore, the non-road mobile machinery industries join forces to shape the future of this Database and limit the administrative burden.

Manufacturers of engines (Euromot), generating sets (Europgen), agricultural (CEMA), construction (CECE), garden and outdoor power equipment (EGMF), materials handling (FEM) and municipal equipment (EUnited) are advocating to develop a workable tool.

We request to:

  1. Limit information requirements to Article 33 of REACH to limit the administrative burden
  2. Allow a flexible reporting mechanism to submit information of similar products in an aggregated format
  3. Ensure an harmonised implementation of the requirements amongst EU Member States
