EU Product Notification according to Annex VIII to the CLP regulation is a new legal obligation that is neither covered by REACH nor by current CLP notifications. Importers and downstream users (formulators) placing hazardous mixtures on the EU market will have to notify such mixtures in the coming years, deadlines depending on the type of use:
- Consumer use (by 1 Jan. 2020)
- Professional use (by 1 Jan. 2021)
- Industrial use (by 1 Jan. 2024)
The objective of the new regulatory requirement is to enhance the quality and consistency of emergency health response due to availability of reliable information about classified mixtures.
