Introduction of the UFI code for hazardous mixtures in the hands of consumers will presumably be postponed by one year
The ECHA has announced that CARACAL, a group of experts for REACH and CLP, has unanimously approved the changes proposed by the European Commission for Annex VIII of the CLP. The Commission will be issuing a delegated legal act which, among other things, will postpone the first date for harmonized notification of mixtures intended for consumers from 1 January 2020 to 1 January 2021. It is expected that this act will take effect this year. The other schedules of EU Regulation 2017/542 (Annex VIII, CLP) will not be affected.
Overview of UFI codes
Additional information about UFI codes and harmonized product notifications is available in our Product Compliance Info 1/2019.
Take advantage of the postponement to prepare yourself thoroughly. We would be glad to assist you with any questions related to notification obligations and UFI codes.
