Tested, checked, and released. The opesus EHS Product Notification software creates poison centre dossiers in the Poison Centres Notification (PCN) format.
In other words, you can now create and download dossiers from your SAP system. After that, simply upload the dossier to the ECHA Submission Portal. This way, you fulfill the requirements of Art. 45 and Annex VIII to the CLP regulation for your product portfolio.
Word has it that there is a possible postponement of the January 2020 deadline for notification of consumer use products to the poison centers under the CLP Art. 45 regulation. We too have received hints of the shift from January 2020 to January 2021 from various stakeholders who attended the CARACAL meeting in July such as ECHA, as well as from some of our customers who are active in industry associations, and national poison centers.
How does this affect my company?
The easy implementation of Art. 45 of the CLP regulation is not a simple matter, as the well-attended workshop of the Chem-Academy on May 15th once again demonstrated. The event, aimed at product safety managers, consisted of a practical workshop, in addition to presentations from industry experts and the authorities involved. Alexander Wegener, CEO of opesus AG, and Markus Pogrzeba, Product Manager at opesus, were able to share their know-how and experience as workshop leaders and lecturers.
