The European Union has harmonised the information requirements on mixtures classified as hazardous for human health or physical effects as of 2021. Importers or downstream users have to submit this information to EU member states, to be used by their poison centres for emergency health response.
Both consumer and industrial products will require a Poison Centres Notification (PCN) if they have a classification under any of the Hazard classes. The PCN must be submitted for every product which falls under the scope of the Classification, Labelling and Packaging (CLP) legislation regardless of which industry it is part of.
ADACT produce the necessary Unique Formula Identifier (UFI) for each product, then compile a complete Poison Centres Notification Dossier which includes submitter details, product formulation, packaging details and countries it is sold in, and finally submit the dossier to all the EU member states where the product is being supplied. You will then be issued with a validated UFI for each product which must be clearly printed on corresponding product packaging to meet compliance requirements.
The UFI generated enables Emergency Health workers to identify the hazardous components (and their levels) and provide the appropriate care.
ADACT use full formulation data and not just a section of a pre-existing SDS. Our dossiers are based on a full formulation breakdown to ensure the most accurate data is transmitted through the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) portal. This of course gives poison centres the best possible information to act upon.
