ECHA by 23. 11. 2021 has not yet published an updated review of Member States regarding the introduction of Annex VIII to CLP (Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008).

In other words, in October and November there were no changes as to which countries accept PCN notifications through the ECHA portal and which are still using their systems. 

The latest valid version is available here. You will search in vain for the document on the usual web address from ECHA under the heading "Key documents". This document was published only in a group on LinkedIn. Unfortunately, I do not know the reasons for the decision.

There are therefore no changes since September's overview which we presented in detail in this post.

The list of countries accepting notifications via the ECHA submission portal remains the same.

The list of countries, which are not yet accepting notifications via the ECHA submission portal

  • Belgium
  • Bulgaria
  • Iceland
  • Liechtenstein
  • Luxemburg
  • Slovakia

By now you can clearly see that the situation regarding poison centre notifications – PCNs is still not harmonized across all the Member States of EU/EEA. Therefore, in the meantime, we still need to pay attention to all the exceptions, and this review is a useful tool.

It is also becoming increasingly clear that PCN notification and implementation of the process is slower than expected (and perhaps also as planned).

Now, if you are facing specific challenges in connection with UFIs and PCNs, we are happy to help. We can help save you a lot of time and effort with finding the answers.
