We highly recommend our customers submit notifications in the PCN format through the ECHA Submission Portal. Since November 2020, the BfR accepts notifications submitted through the ECHA Submission Portal for both mixtures affected by CLP Art. 45 and for the German Detergents and Cleaning Agents Act (WRGM: Wasch- und Reinigungsmittelgesetz).
If you would like to keep your notifications separate, notification is done electronically by uploading it to the dedicated BfR portal.
Firstly, you will need to apply for a company code. You can do so using the form here.
Using opesus EHS Product Notification, all data required for a product notification is gathered and generated into an XML format “XProductNotification”. You can then download this file and manually upload it to the BfR portal or attach in an e-mail that you can send out of your SAP system. We recommend to send the XML file by e-mail as this avoid additional manual steps.
