Commission adopts change to first compliance date for reporting to poison centres

The European Commission has adopted a delegated act amending the CLP Regulation, which will postpone the first compliance date for harmonised reporting to poison centres, for mixtures intended for consumer use, from 1 January 2020 to 1 January 2021. Other compliance dates will not be affected. The same amendment also introduces a few changes to how the information should be provided.

The adoption is followed by a two-month period of scrutiny by the European Parliament and Council. If neither of them objects, the adoption enters into force after being published in the Official Journal.

The Commission is also working on an additional amendment of Annex VIII aiming to solve some of the concerns raised by stakeholders on the workability of the notification requirements. This amendment is expected in 2020.
