Import Notifications

In accordance with obligations under the Rotterdam Convention, other Parties to the Convention should notify exports from their country to the EU of chemicals which are banned or severely restricted on their territory. These are import notifications for the EU. The import notification contains information on the date/period of export, the exporting and importing country, the name of the imported chemical(s) and (optionally) the CAS number(s).

It is possible to search for import notifications by exporting and/or importing country, year, chemical name and CAS number. A refined search is available by using multiple search filters.

Note: The United Kingdom withdrew from the European Union (EU) on 31 January 2020; however, in accordance with the Withdrawal Agreement, EU law continued to apply to that territory until 31 December 2020.

In searching for import notifications made to the United Kingdom until 31 December 2020, please note that the United Kingdom is listed as an “Importing Country”.

As of 1 January 2021, a distinction is drawn between the “United Kingdom (Great Britain)” and the “United Kingdom (Northern Ireland)”. This reflects the Protocol on Ireland / Northern Ireland – and the fact that the PIC Regulation continues to apply to Northern Ireland. Specifically, as of 1 January 2021, the “United Kingdom (Great Britain)” is listed as an “Exporting Country” for imports to the EU from the United Kingdom (Great Britain). By contrast, United Kingdom (Northern Ireland)” is listed as an “Importing Country”.
