EU Poison Centre Notification (PCN)


Background of EU Poison Centre Notification (PCN)

EU Poison Centre Notification (PCN)

As more and more chemical products such as cleaners, paints, and adhesives for the public's daily use and for professionals are placed on the EU market, the incidence of accidental exposure or improper use of hazardous chemicals is also increasing. In response, many member states have established a system to collect information from companies that place hazardous mixtures on the market. On March 22, 2017, the EU published the Poison Center Notification Regulation (Commission Regulation 2017/542), a new Annex VIII to the CLP Regulation, to implement coordinated information requirements for emergency medical response, which contributes to product safety throughout the EU.

According to this regulation, all mixtures placed on the EU market with physical and chemical hazards or health hazards must be notified to the poison center of the member state. And it must be labeled with the unique formula identifier (UFI).
