The Chemicals Act (No 13 of 2009), as amended by No 32 of 2010, sets out that the National Poisons Information Centre (NPIC), based at Beaumont Hospital in Dublin is the responsible body for the receipt of information under Article 45 of the CLP Regulation 1272/2008.

Under Irish law, there is currently no obligation to nofity industrial chemicals to the NPIC but there is a need to provide relevant data if compaines wish to use the NPIC emergency contact details in Section 1.4 of the SDS.  Further information about compiling Safety Data Sheets is available from the European Chemicals Agency; see here.

Under the Detergent Regulation (EC) No 648/2004, there is an obligation to provide, on request, to the NPIC an ingredients datasheet for all products placed on the Irish market which are covered by the Detergents Regulation.
