Many European countries have required for several years a declaration to poison control centres for hazardous mixtures marketed on their territory. This declaration serves to provide the best medical advice to individual consumers or health professionals in the event of exposure to hazardous mixtures.
In order to harmonize the declarations, the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has introduced a platform of declaration to poison control centres. To facilitate declarations, a labeling element, the Unique Formula Identifier (UFI), has also been introduced.
From 01/01/2021 manufacturers, importers and even distributors have to ensure the conformity of product labels and related declarations.
