The Classification, Labelling and Packaging (CLP) Regulation 1272 was introduced in 2008 to ensure there is a high level of protection of health and the environment, and allow free movement of substances, mixtures and articles in the EU. Article 45 of the CLP Regulation requires companies placing hazardous mixtures on the market to provide information about their products.

In 2017, Annex VIII was added to the CLP Regulation. The new annex introduced one central poison centre – the ECHA (European Chemicals Agency) submission portal – to replace the existing individual country centres. Once a product is uploaded to the portal, the information is available throughout Europe.

Full formulation data

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 ECHA portal. This of course gives poison centres the best possible information to act upon.

How CLP affects vaping

Article 45 requires EU vaping companies (‘EU importers and downstream users’) to report their mixtures, ‘..placed on the market that are classified for human health…’

What is required?

Full guidance is available on www.poisoncentres.echa.europa.eu Principal elements include:

  • provide the full chemical composition of the mixture – this means both the hazardous and non-hazardous components.
  • label your product with a unique formula identifier (UFI) – the UFI allows poison centres to rapidly identify the product
  • assign a product category according to the European Product Categorisation System (EuPCS).

Can I do this myself?

In short yes. It is worth noting that considerable technical expertise is required to compile a notification due to the technical information on the chemicals in each product.

How can ADACT help?

Due to the complexity of the process, many customers have asked us for help. We are able to register products with our trusted guarantee that it is done correctly and on time.

As part of the registration process, we generate a Unique Formulation Identification (UFI) code. The codes must be clearly printed on corresponding product packaging to meet compliance requirements.

Poison Centres and the UK

The current regulations for the UK require vaping companies to submit Safety Data Sheets (SDS) to the UK Poison Centre by email only – a digital service is planned for the future. Email sds@npis.org.

Note: SDS must be REACH Regulation EC No 1907/1148 Annex11,2019 compliant.

Comply on time and help save lives: https://youtu.be/-7f88r6Dk0Y

Note: If you sell liquids in Europe, you need to submit your data by midnight on 31 December, or your products maybe withdrawn from sale.
