NOTIFICATION PROCEDURE FOR MIXTURES FOR CONSUMER OR PROFESSIONAL USE

Mixtures for consumer or professional use can only be notified via the ECHA PCN portal

If you have already notified your consumer or professional use mixtures directly to the NPIC before 1 January 2021 these notifications will remain valid until 1 January 2025 or until changes are made to the product (e.g. changes to the mixture composition, toxicological properties or product identifiers). Updates to these notifications will require a new notification via the PCN portal.

If your product remains unchanged until 1 January 2025, you must then make a new submission in the harmonised format via the PCN portal, as no migration of data is planned. If your product is discontinued before the end of the transition period, you do not need to make a new submission.

NOTIFICATION PROCEDURE FOR MIXTURES FOR INDUSTRIAL USE ONLY  

You can notify mixtures for industrial use via the ECHA PCN portal or, alternatively, use the direct notification procedure described below.

Note that if your mixture for industrial use is re-formulated further down in the supply chain and ends up in a consumer or professional use product, you MUST notify it via the ECHA PCN portal.

Direct notification procedure for mixtures for industrial use only:

Please note the requirement for full ingredient composition.

  • Complete the Product Registration Form .
  • Use one form for each product. 
  • Save the document under the product name as it appears on the label/container and return it by email to chemicalsinfo@beaumont.ie or on USB flash drive to the Poisons Information Centre, Beaumont Hospital, Dublin 9, Ireland.
  • Security restrictions within Beaumont Hospital IT services may restrict access to zip file attachments so if you intend to send a zip file, please let us know via a separate email without attachments.

Annex VIII will enter into force for industrial use mixtures on 1 January 2024. From that date you must notify these mixtures in the harmonised format via the PCN portal. If you have notified your industrial use mixtures directly to the NPIC before 1 January 2024 these notifications will remain valid until 1 January 2025 or until changes are made to the product (e.g. changes to the mixture composition, toxicological properties or product identifiers). 

If your product remains unchanged until 1 January 2025, you must then make a new submission in the harmonised format via the PCN portal, as no migration of data is planned. If your product is discontinued before the end of the transition period, you do not need to make a new submission.
