13th BfR User Conference Product Notifications


The 13th BfR User Conference addresses all actors of the PCN process, such as industry (legal submitters), national and regional authorities and PCs in Europe, in particular in Germany.

The German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) is the appointed body for the receipt and processing of product notifications used in the event of emergency health response in German Poison Centres (PC).

Since 1 January 2021, the Poison Centres Notification format (PCN format), according to Annex VIII of the CLP Regulation, has been the notification format in force for the notification of products classified as hazardous on the basis of their health and physical effects,  according to Article 45 of the Regulation. Information on these products needs to be submitted to the bodies appointed of the respective member states of the European Economic Area, where their market launch is intended. Based on national legislation, the BfR also handles product notifications on detergent and cleaning agents as well as industrial products not or not yet covered by the European legal provisions, respectively. The product information received is processed and eventually forwarded, by the BfR, to the seven German PC. Presenting and discussing the implementation of the PCN procedure and the experience of the parties involved will be in the focus of the conference.
