Ste že slišali za unikatni identifikator formulacije ali  Unique Formula Identifier (UFI) po angleško?

If you haven't already, here's some basic information you need to know.

The abbreviation UFI stands for Unique Formula Identifier. It is a 16-digit code that is already indicated on the labels of products that are classified as dangerous mixtures. It is also usually listed in safety data sheets.

Importers and mixture formulators (producers) who place mixtures on the market in any country of the European Union are bound by the process of generating the UFI code. The process itself partially involves also companies that don't formulate the mixtures themselves but re-package or re-name them.

A company can generate a UFI code with its tax number. Precise information about the composition and hazards of the chemical (mixture) is then linked to this number in the notification process.

The UFI for hazardous mixtures must be printed on the label. The following applies here:

  • Mandatory for hazardous mixtures classified as health hazards (marked with hazard statement: H3XX).
  • It is also mandatory for hazardous mixtures with physical hazards (marked with the hazard statement: H2XX).
  • However, it is not mandatory for mixtures that are only classified as environmental hazards (marked with the hazard statement: H4XX).

The UFI is part of the chemical legislation that came into force on January 1, 2021, and is intended to protect users of chemicals and to take appropriate action in case of poisoning.
