Poison Centres — Annex VIII amendment published

13 January 2020

Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2020/11 amending Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council on classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures as regards information relating to emergency health response, has been published.

This amendment formally delays the first deadline for consumer mixtures by a year, bringing it in line with the deadline for professional use mixtures.

The dates are now:

Consumer and Professional use — 1 January 2021.

Industrial use — 1 January 2024.

For those who have already made notifications in accordance with Article 45(1) before the dates listed above, there is an extended deadline of the 1 January 2025 by which all existing notifications must be updated to the new requirements.

The amendment also allows for the Unique Formula Identifier (UFI) to be added to either the mixture label or the mixture packaging.
