Poisons Centre Notification (PCN)
New Obligations for Biocides Registrations in Ireland for hazardous products from 1st January 2021
From 1st January 2021 poison centre notifications for mixtures for consumer use or professional use must be submitted to the ECHA submission portal. The Poisons Centre Notification (PCN) format and tools, along with Q&A’s are available on the ECHA website, along with the Unique Formula Identifier (UFI) generator. Further information is available at https://poisoncentres.echa.europa.eu/home.
Industrial products can be notified directly to the NPIC at Beaumont Hospital or alternatively to the ECHA submission portal. Notifications sent directly to the NPIC must use the NPIC Product Registration Form (the NPIC cannot accept xml files directly). Further information is available at https://www.poisons.ie/Manufacturers.
Please note that the member states competent authorities expect the UFI codes to be printed on the final product labels.
If you need assistance with preparing or submitting poison centre notifications, please do not hesitate to contact one of the biocide team at Kerona.
