The German industrial group for steel and metal processing (WSM: Wirtschaftsverband Stahl- und Metallverarbeitung e.V.) had an information day for its members on November 5th regarding the SCIP database. We were honored to have had the opportunity to present to the group about our SAP-based solution for SCIP.
The information day consisted of two parts. The first part focused on the foundations of the SCIP database requirements and the second part consisted of presentations by various IT service providers. As the SCIP deadline is fast approaching, participants had a lot of questions surrounding the topic. To answer those questions, there was a wide range of speakers present including:
- Heinz Bülter from BAuA (Bundesanstalt für Arbeitsschutz und Arbeitsmedizin), where the REACH-CLP Biocide Helpdesk is located, talked about communication of REACH SVHC information in the supply chain
- Tim Becker from REACHLaw gave an update on the current implementation status of the SCIP requirements
- Timo Unger from Hyundai presented the implementation of SCIP requirements in IMDS that is going to be released in March 2021
- Jochen Dettke from DEKRA Assurance Services GmbH talked about how DIN EN IEC 63000 could be a starting point for companies to tackle SCIP requirements
The WSM is one of Germany’s largest trade associations and is a member of the Federal Association of German Industry (BDI) and ORGALIME, the European association of metal processing and mechanical engineering. The WSM represents about 5000 family-run companies, which in total generate about 80 billion Euros in annual sales and employ about 500,000. For more information, visit: https://www.wsm-net.de/
