Second poison centre notifications compliance date passed smoothly
As of 1 January 2024 all hazardous mixtures for industrial use only, placed on the EU market, must be notified in the harmonised format according to Annex VIII of the CLP Regulation.
In the lead up to the second compliance date for industrial use mixtures, a small increase in industrial use only notifications was observed via the ECHA Submission portal. However, industrial use only notifications represent around 10% of all notifications covering consumer and professional use types.
Companies who have made their poison centre notification for industrial mixtures in a national format before 1 January 2024 must update their information in the harmonised format by 1 January 2025. The notification must be done immediately in the harmonised format if any changes are made to the mixture's composition, product identifiers, classification (for health or physical hazards) or toxicological hazards.
