Updated guidance clarifies labelling requirements for poison centre notifications

The Guidance on harmonised information relating to emergency health response – Annex VIII to CLP – has been updated (version 3.0) to include changes following the annex’s first amendment, which entered into force on 20 January 2020.

In addition, the Labelling and Packaging Guidance has also been updated.

ECHA is currently working on additional changes to the Guidance resulting from the second amendment of Annex VIII, which has been consulted with Competent Authorities for REACH and CLP (CARACAL) on 15 May 2020 and expected to be finalised and adopted by the Commission by the end of summer 2020.

The second amendment covers workability issues identified by certain industry sectors, such as for mixtures with high or unpredictable composition variability, where a disproportionate number of notifications and UFIs would be required.
