What is UFI?
General information about the Unique formula identifier (UFI) can be found here. This is related to the CLP regulation (“Classification, Labelling and Packaging”)
From The Commission Regulation implementing Article 45 of CLP
Unique formula identifier (UFI). The UFI is a unique code to be printed on the label of the product. It will create an unambiguous link between a mixture placed on the market and the information on that specific mixture submitted to poison centres, so that the chemical formulation of the product can be precisely and rapidly identified. A precise identification is necessary to provide appropriate curative measures in the case of an emergency call.
There is an algorithm that can be used by companies to generate an UFI for a given product. Also, the ECHA (European Chemicals Agency) provides an UFI Generator on their website.
