A new CLP label element will appear on chemical product labels from January 2021 – a 16-character code called the unique formula identifier (UFI). By 2025, the UFI will be mandatory on the label of all products classified for health or physical hazards. Importers and downstream users placing such products on the market, will have to provide specific product information, including the UFI, to poison centres. Tools and support to generate the UFI are available on ECHA’s Poison Centres website.
We have now passed deadline - all new chemials covered by CLP article 45 regulation (annex VIII) must be labeled with UFI-code, and dossier/report submitted to ECHA.
