Since 1 January 2021, importers and downstream users are obligated to notify their mixtures in a harmonised format and unique formula identifiers (UFIs) must be included on mixture labels. This is an important change for companies placing hazardous mixtures on the market.
Most EU countries are now accepting notifications through the ECHA Submission portal. ECHA’s overview of Member States that accept them is updated regularly. The overview and contacts of the national authorities can be found on ECHA’s national support page.
Almost 350 000 notifications were submitted by the year end via the ECHA Submission portal, although the duty to notify in the harmonised format only took effect on 1 January 2021. In addition, ECHA Helpdesk received more than 1 000 questions related to poison centre notifications in the past few months.
