Webinar: Poison Centre Notification: A brief overview

The main purpose of a Poison Centre notification (Annex VIII to CLP Regulation ((EC) No. 1272/2008)), is to allow designated bodies within each EU Member State to keep a record of the adverse effects of hazardous mixtures and to provide the general public and medical professionals with the information they require in an emergency situation.

Importers and downstream users placing mixtures with a physical and, or, health hazard on the European market are obligated to submit information to the Member States appointed Poison Centre. This piece of legislation will apply to such mixtures for consumer use from 1 January 2020, for use by professionals from 1 January 2021, and for industrial use from 1 January 2024.
