On March 22, 2017, the EU Commission Regulation 2017/542 was adopted to lay out unified Poison Centre Notification (PCN) requirements concerning hazardous mixtures, so that well-clarified and consistent information of such mixtures can be available to all poison centres of EU countries. It amends the regulation concerning classification, labelling, and packaging (CLP) of substances and mixtures (EC Regulation 1272/2008) by adding an Annex on harmonized information relating to emergency health response and requiring the addition of a unique formula identifier (UFI) on the label of hazardous mixtures.
The implementation of this regulation shows that the EU will pay more attention to mixture management in the future and relevant measures will become stricter. Although the deadline of PCN requirements for hazardous mixtures for consumer use has been delayed from January 1, 2020 to January 1, 2021, we still recommend that enterprises should prepare for notifications as early as possible. This webinar will introduce the background and latest developments of PCN, as well as strategies for regulatory compliance in this regard.
