Who is Responsible for PCN Notifications?

All importers and manufacturers of mixtures sold in the European Union, as well as companies that repackage or rename mixtures, are responsible for PCN notifications. A company generates the UFI code using its VAT number, then enters precise information about the composition and hazards of the chemical during the notification process.

Which Mixtures are Subject to PCN?

PCN notification is mandatory for mixtures that are hazardous to health (labeled with hazard statements: H3XX) and for mixtures with physical hazards (labeled with hazard statements: H2XX). It is not mandatory for mixtures classified only as hazardous to the environment (labeled with hazard statements: H4XX).
