Industry letter to President von der Leyen: notification deadline SCIP database must be postponed

  • September 21, 2020

On Monday 21st September, ASD joined a coalition of 40 industry organisations to write a letter to European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen calling for decisive action to solve issues within the EU Waste Framework Directive (WFD), specifically the Substances of Concern in Products (SCIP) database. 

ASD and its members, along with the other signatories, still have serious concerns regarding the workability, proportionality and value of the SCIP database, and have expressed these repeatedly for the last two years, however these have still not been addressed. The coalition also notes that a proper impact study would help shape the way forward in order to deliver on the EU ambition for a Circular European Economy.
