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.   

The InBrief publication can be found here and the animated video is available here
