Submission of information on hazardous mixtures to poison centres
By collecting information on hazardous mixtures in use on the Slovenian market, we enable the staff of the Center for Clinical Toxicology and Pharmacology at the University Clinical Center Ljubljana (UKCL) to determine, in the shortest possible time, the method of countermeasure in the event of acute human poisoning and consequently mitigate / prevent the consequences.
Submission of information
In 2017, the Commission issued Regulation 2017/542 (this is a new CLP Annex VIII) which facilitated the harmonization of procedures for the submission of information on hazardous mixtures by importers and downstream users of hazardous mixtures. Thus the regulation allows better response to acute human poisoning and development of preventive measures as well as equalizes the level of protection of users of hazardous mixtures in all Member States.
The obligation to provide uniform information which is applicable to importers and downstream users of hazardous mixtures shall be introduced gradually for:
- mixtures for consumer use on 1.1.2021,
- mixtures for professional use on 1.1.2021, and
- mixtures for industrial use on 1.1.2024.
For mixtures entered in the List of Chemicals on the Market of the Republic of Slovenia, the Register of Biocidal Products on the Market of the Republic of Slovenia or in the List of Registered Plant Protection Products on the Market of the Republic of Slovenia before the above dates, importers and downstream users are based on the provisions of section 1.4 of Part A of Annex VIII not obliged to submit data under harmonized new system until 1.1.2025 (does not apply to exceptions in section 1.5).
In Slovenia, information on hazardous mixtures is submitted to the Chemicals Office and Center for Clinical Toxicology and Pharmacology at UKCL as designated national authorities.
In cooperation with the Commission European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), has prepared comprehensive support for information submission procedures for Member States.
All submitters (from the Republic of Slovenia and other EU Member States) who place a hazardous mixture on the market in the Republic of Slovenia must submit the required information through the ECHA Submission Portal, which is available from the end of April 2019.
More information is available on the ECHA website:
• Poison Centers.
(detailed information on self-reporting and obligations of submitters),
• Steps for the industry
(industry recommendations on how to prepare to submit information),
• Guidelines for harmonized information regarding emergency medical care.
Reporting of data for chemicals using the ISK web application under Article 35 of the Chemicals Act (obligation for Slovenian producers and importers into Slovenia) remains unchanged.
