Poison Centres: A Guide for Annex VIII Compliance [checklist]

Posted on: September 23, 2019

Do you need to submit a Poison Centre Notification?

In an attempt to harmonise Poison Centre information across the EU, Annex VIII to CLP was published in March 2017, and included a number of key processes, obligations, and deadlines relating to Poison Centre Notifications.

Our checklist will help you understand the key requirements of Annex VIII. These requirements—which must be satisfied to avoid the financial and legal costs of non-compliance—depend on the products you supply and your role in the supply chain.

Please Note: The first amendment to Annex VIII to CLP was published in the Official Journal on 10th January 2020, which postponed the first compliance deadline for mixtures placed on the market for consumer use to 1st January 2021. This replaces the original deadline of 1st January 2020 (shown in the Checklist below). There has been no change to the deadlines for mixtures placed on the market for professional use (1st January 2021) and industrial use (1st January 2024). More information on this amendment can be found here.
