Appointed Bodies and Poison Centres will have at their disposal search criteria such as the unique formula identifier (UFI) in order to access information relating to emergency health response submitted through the European Chemicals Agencys (ECHA) Submission portal. Users will be able to view the information in PDF and download it in IUCLID format as well. While many Member States have indicated that they will only accept notifications submitted through the ECHA Submission portal from 1 January 2021 onwards, they have the opportunity to start the on-boarding preparations and get familiar with the PCN database now. More information will be provided for appointed bodies in accompanying documentation and in a dedicated webinar on 3 December 2019.
