CLP Update - Major Changes to Poison Centre Requirements | February 2017

In accordance with Article 45 of CLP, each Member State has an appointed Poison Centre, who is responsible for receiving information from importers and downstream users who place hazardous chemical mixtures on the market. This information is relevant for formulating preventative and curative measures – particularly in the event of an emergency health response – and is required for any chemical mixtures placed on the market which are classified as hazardous on the basis of their health and physical effects.


ECHA established a dedicated web site in 2016 to provide the tools and guidance establishing a standard format for submission of information together with a means of creating the Unique Formula Identifier (UFI) enabling exact identification of the product and its composition. Final versions of the tools and guidance are anticipated by the end of 2017.
