Irish importers and downstream users who place chemical mixtures (industrial chemicals, biocides and plant protection products) classified for health and/or physical hazards on the EU market have an obligation to notify information to the National Poisons Information Centre of Ireland (NPIC) under the EU CLP Regulation. As of 2021, the information to be notified must be prepared in an EU-harmonised Poison Centres Notification (PCN) format.
This webinar, hosted by the Health and Safety Authority in collaboration with the National Poisons Information Centre and the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, will outline the requirements to notify hazardous mixtures to NPIC under CLP.
