ECHA has published on Agust 23rd a new document regarding the overview of Member States decisions in relation to implementation of Annex VIII to the CLP Regulation (Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008). You can find it here.
If you follow our posts on this topic, then you know that Bulgaria, Iceland and Slovakia were the last three countries that did not yet accept PCN applications via the ECHA portal.
Iceland has now joined the countries that accept PCN notifications via the ECHA portal. In 2022, therefore, Belgium, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg and Iceland are the last of the countries to belong to this mentioned group.
Bulgaria and Slovakia are currently still using their own systems. This means that until canceled, their state system must be used to send notifications.
All other countries are connected to the ECHA portal, so PCN notifications can be sent via the ECHA submission portal. You can see which shipping options are available to you in column 2 of the table on page 5.
We need to touch also local fees, which represent an additional cost for companies. These fees can be an important factor in deciding whether or not to carry out a PCN notification for an individual country.
To summarize these additional costs by country (arranged alphabetically):
- Belgium – €200 per individual product;
- Italy – €50 per local distributor (regardless of the number of products);
- Hungary – price €50 per individual product.
That's all for today. You can find even more contributions on this topic at this link.
