ECHA releases new submission portal for poison centres

ECHA has released a new portal that allows companies to prepare and submit information on hazardous mixtures that can be used by poison centres.

Improving compliance is ECHA's key priority

Non-compliant information on chemicals is a serious issue that needs to be fixed. Progress has been made with evaluation but further measures are planned to raise the percentage of dossiers checked and increase efficiency.

May Newsletter online

The May issue of the ECHA Newsletter introduces ECHA’s Submission portal for poison centre notifications and explains ECHA’s role in setting occupational exposure limits.
