Article 45 and Annex VIII of the Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 (CLP) require the transmission of information on mixtures classified as hazardous based on their physical or health effects to the poison control centres in the EU Member State(s) where they are placed on the market.

The deadlines for compliance with these requirements have been staggered and depend on the type of use of the mixture: 1 January 2021 for consumer and professional uses and 1 January 2024 for industrial uses.

Thus, from 1 January 2024, importers and downstream users who place hazardous mixtures intended for industrial use on the market must have been subject of a Poison Centre Notification (PCN) to comply with the requirements of annex VIII of the CLP.

If a mixture intended for industrial use is already on the market and notified via the national declaration systems before 1 January 2024, it may benefit from an additional period until 1 January 2025 to be notified in the harmonised format (PCN). In the absence of a national declaration and/or after this date, the mixture may no longer be placed on the market if it has not been notified in PCN format.

You are a manufacturer, importer, downstream user and/or distributor. You’re wondering about your obligations? You would like to make an assessment of your mixtures’ declarations?
