Poison Centres Notification

The EU has harmonized the information requirements on mixtures classified as hazardous for human health or physical effects as of 2021.  

Article 45 and Annex VIII to the CLP Regulation identify EU importers and downstream users of certain hazardous mixtures on the market as responsible for the submission of the information to appointed bodies.

The required information includes the clear identification of the mixture, information on the full composition and hazardous ingredient substances, and the intended use through a system of harmonized categories. The information must be submitted by electronic means in a specified format, which enables the appointed bodies to easily retrieve the relevant information. A unique formula identifier (“UFI”) which is linked to a valid submission, and placed on the label or the packaging, will allow the poison centers to unambiguously identify the composition of the mixture and propose the appropriate medical treatment in the event of poisoning.

The date of applicability depends on the use type of the mixture: 

  • 1 January 2021 for consumer or professional use
  • 1 January 2024 for industrial use

If you are placing hazardous mixtures on the market, you will have to prepare information in an EU-harmonised Poison Centres Notification (PCN) format.
