On Monday, February 17th, 2020, the long-awaited release of the test version of SCIP database – short for Substances of Concern In articles as such, or in complex objects (Products) – was released. After almost a year of seeking funding for development and intense development efforts by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), a test version is now accessible via ECHA’s SCIP website. As a prototype version, it will not yet provide the full functionality of the final SCIP database, which is expected to be released by October 2020. But it will still be an option to test how the final submission will be. ECHA will continuously update the prototype with new functionality for testing until it goes live.
