Upcoming webinar:- Poison centre notification – the true cost of non-compliance

If you have mixtures with a health or physical effect classification on the market in the European Union, and they have not been notified with the individual Member State’s poison centre, then you may be out of compliance – leaving you at risk of enforcement action.

NCEC invites you to register for a complimentary webinar providing you with an overview of the consequences of non-compliance and advice on the strategic steps you should take to ensure compliance now and allow a smooth transition into compliance for 2020 onwards.

Enforcement on the rise
European poison centre legislation is a complex regulatory area with each Member State having their own implementation of article 45 of CLP – their poison centre legislation.

Annex VIII to CLP was released in March this year with the intention of harmonising these variations. However, the obligation to notify mixtures in Member States has existed for many years and the recent publicity around the annex has not only increased awareness, but also enforcement.

In this webinar, our experts will highlight…

  • Current Member State enforcement areas and the consequences of non-compliance.
  • Advise on the strategic steps you and your company should take to ensure compliance now and allow a smooth transition into compliance for 2020 onwards.
  • Update on the Member State implementation of Annex VIII

This will be followed by a live question and answer session for which you are also welcome to submit questions in advance.
