The EU Commission has reacted to calls from industry associations (see: Poison Centers: ECHA Opens Submission Portal for Hazardous Mixtures), and prepared a new draft regulation. According to the draft, the reporting period for mixtures used by consumers is being moved from January 1, 2020 to January 1, 2021.
Furthermore, the draft indicates that the unique formula indicator (UFI) would then be required only on safety data sheets (SDS) and no longer be required on the label of hazardous mixtures delivered to industrial users. For deliveries of unpacked hazardous mixtures, the UFI must be given on the SDS or on a copy of the label that accompanies the material. Modifications and additions are also planned for product identifiers, applicants, and concentration ranges.
The draft regulation will be discussed in the next CARACAL meeting on July 1–2 in Brussels. It could then be adopted in September or October.
