New version of ePIC available

The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has published an update to the IT tool used for submitting export notifications under the Prior Informed Consent (PIC) Regulation. The revision enables companies to: Get an alert if there are duplicate submissions of an export notification. Resubmit Article 10 reports if requested by the national authorities. The Article 10 report is an annual report on the exact quantities of chemicals shipped to or from each non-EU country. In addition, certain tasks for the national authorities have been automated, which will reduce the overall processing times for notifications. The ePIC user manuals have been updated to reflect these changes. Further information is available at: ePIC Manuals
