Chemicals subject to PIC
The section on chemicals subject to PIC includes all chemicals listed in the relevant annexes of the PIC Regulation. Chemicals listed in Part 1 of Annex I are subject to the export notification procedure; chemicals listed in Part 2 of Annex I, in addition to being subject to export notification procedure, qualify also for the PIC notification procedure. Chemicals listed in Part 3 of Annex I, are subject to the full PIC procedure under the Rotterdam Convention.
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.
In addition, other chemicals have been identified that are also subject to the PIC Regulation, as they are members of chemical groups which are explicitly listed in Annex I or V. These chemicals, which are not themselves explicitly listed in a PIC Regulation Annex, are shown in italics.
It is possible to search for chemicals based on the Annex and part of the Annex they are listed under, EC and CAS number, chemical name and use category. It is also possible to refine the query by using multiple search filters.
