What is a UFI?
What does it mean for your product labels? Do you need it and how do you get it? A new publication and an animated video have the answers.
A new label element will appear on products from 2020 – it is a 16-character code called the unique formula identifier (UFI). By 2025, the UFI will be mandatory on the label of all products classified for health and physical hazards. Companies – primarily importers and downstream users – placing such products on the market will have to provide specific product information, including the UFI, to poison centres.
