Annex V Part 2

The annex V part 2 entries are hard-coded in the system and will not be available in the substances subject to PIC data.

Hence the Annex V part 2 entries can be found here.

 
Annex V lists the chemicals and articles the use of which is prohibited in the European Union and which shall not be exported. Chemicals and articles listed in Part 1 of Annex V are subject to export ban and belong to the category of persistent organic pollutants; Part 2 of Annex V lists chemicals and articles subject to export ban other than persistent organic pollutants.
