The regulations for poison centre notification within Europe for organisations putting hazardous mixtures on the market are complex and difficult to achieve, in particular, for organisations who provide products for consumer or professional use like those within the adhesives and sealants markets. These regulations are made more complicated due to the harmonisation effort, which affects notifications from 2020 but does not excuse organisations from notifying their products today, which is currently a legislative requirement. This session will review the regulations now, and in the future, what organizations should do, and the current cost of non-compliance (using examples of enforcement across various member states). We will also outline the best process to follow to develop a strategic ‘battle plan’ to complete notifications, taking into account risk of enforcement, cost of notification, implications on Intellectual Property, etc.
