As of 1 January 2020, new requirements regarding sending information and labelling hazardous mixtures for consumer usage will enter into force on the EU level. We are talking about the UFI labelling and the regulation of PCN notifications.

Your obligations regarding the UFI code and PCN procedure depend on your place in the supply chain. You can read more about the topic here.

Perhaps 1 January seems far away, but our experience from 2015 (transition from DPD to CLP legislation) show that communication along the supply chain must start as soon as possible.

Therefore, we have prepared three letters for our regular monthly clients that they can simply copy, customise and quickly send to their suppliers. They cover three main areas:

  1. Letter for distributors for regulating UFI and PCN notification for one countrye. for Slovenia
  2. Letter for distributors for regulating UFI and PCN notification for undisturbed sales in several member countries of European Union.
  3. Letter for manufacturers/mixture formulators.

It is true that UFI and PCN put the major share of responsibility on formulators and mixture importers. Despite this, companies that rename and repack the mixtures, also have some responsibilities.

Therefore, timely communication along the entire supply chain is of key importance if you want to do business without limitations as of January 2020.

You can gain access to above letters (and other exclusive materials) as our monthly client. If you need help with managing all these chemical law requirements, it may be time to get in touch with us.
