Based on to the new REACH regulation Article 45 (PCN: Poison Center Notification), United Initiators GmbH will introduce the so-called UFI (Unique Formula Identifier) number on their product labels and in their SDS.

UFI (Unique Formula Identifier) is a 16-character code that will be required on labels for mixtures classified for physical or health hazards.

Based on the UFI code, poison centers within the EEA will be able to identify substances in a notified mixture and provide suitable medical advice in the event of an emergency call.

Different deadlines apply for the notification of hazardous mixtures depending on the intended use of the product.

  • Relevant Mixtures intended for consumer and professional use need to be notified and labelled with a UFI code by January 1, 2021
  • Relevant Mixtures intended for industrial use need to be notified and labelled with a UFI code by January 1, 2024

 

United Initiators GmbH is still taking care about the new requirements and has notified all relevant mixtures during the last months.

The UFI code is already printed on the relevant product labels.
