opesus has been part of the ECHA SCIP IT User Group since Oct 2019. The SCIP IT User Group meets monthly to discuss IT improvements, challenges, and issues surrounding the ECHA SCIP database. One of the main topics of discussions is around system-to-system integration (S2S) between a customer’s ERP system and the ECHA SCIP database.
Are you supplying articles and complex objects on the EU market? If you are, the requirements of the Waste Framework Directive (WFD) might affect you. EU suppliers of articles and complex objects that contain substances from the Candidate List of substances of very high concern (SVHC) are required to submit information to the SCIP database. This requirement kicks into effect from 5th January 2021.
We were presenting about the requirements for the SCIP database at the Electronics Goes Green 2020 conference. As the name goes, the Electronics Goes Green conference brings together all key players and stakeholders in the electronics and ICT industry.
The German industrial group for mechanical engineering (VDMA: Verband Deutscher Maschinen- und Anlagenbau) conducted a virtual information day for its members on August 27th regarding the SCIP database. We were honored to have had the opportunity to present to the group about our SAP-based solution for SCIP.
Twice a year the entire opesus team comes together for a full week of what we call “Office Weeks”- one in summer and another in winter. For us, these weeks are the most intense, productive, and popular team working weeks of the year.
Opesus EHS Product Notification (EPN) for the EU SCIP Format is now available! Suppliers of articles who need to submit notifications to the ECHA SCIP database can now use opesus EPN to generate and submit dossiers in the SCIP format.

When we had to decide to cancel the conference in Frankfurt in order to switch to an online event, it was not easy for us. The personal exchange between customers, interested parties and partners is very important to us. As you know, our corporate philosophy is based to a large extent on precisely this personal and direct contact.
On 17th March, ECHA held a webinar where they introdcued the SCIP database prototype. With more than 250 people listening in, the webinar was very well attended.
