In April 2022, IUCLID was updated and as a result there are additional checks for poison centre notifications.

There are new technical checks that work like the pre-submission import check.

ECHA explains that “These checks will ensure that companies using third-party software to create their notifications will follow the guidelines in chapter 3 of the IUCLID Developer’s Guide. Those companies already following the guidelines do not need to adapt their systems. To avoid any import failures, three new checks will be in place to ensure:

  • uniqueness of the document ID in the manifest.xml

  • i6d files are referenced from a <document> or <attachment> tag

  • binary files under the attachments folder are referenced from an <attachment> tag.”

There are also some new validation checks specific to group notifications.

The following checks have been added.

BR842 All provided “Classification and labelling” records must be linked to “Mixture composition” record(s). (G)

BR870 If the new update reason “cease product from market” is indicated in the dossier header, at least one country should exist under the ceased market list in at least one Product record. (S + G)

BR882 Reported total concentration exceeds 105%. (G)

QLT692 Same tick box selection for the same constituent (none/SF/ICG/GCI) in all “Mixture composition” records. (G)

QLT881 MiM's UFI can be the same as mixture's UFI only if the composition is reported to be 100% MiM (MainMixture has one “Mixture” constituent which exact concentration is indicated to be 100%). (S)

QLT893 If in the “Contact person” record “'Contact type” is indicated to be “other” then it must be explained what is meant by “other” in all the relevant languages in the language specific field(s). (S + G)

QLT894 If in the Mixture composition the Component's function is indicated to be “other” then it must be explained what is meant by “other” in all the relevant languages in the language specific field(s). (S)

QLT899 Same constituent (reference substance) cannot be reported in “Mixture composition” multiple times unless the classification and labelling is a different (Group).

The following checks have been modified.

[QLT620] “New submission after significant change of composition” is not allowed if there is no change in the composition from the previous notification to exclude components that are indicated to be “Standard formula component SF”.
