Poison Centres

With legislative requirements varying significantly across EU member states, submitting data to Poison Centres is a complex process.

Through the provision of expert advice and technical resources, NCEC is able to assist organisations in complying and avoiding the financial and legal costs of non-compliance.

NCEC regularly receives a number of enquiries from organisations about the application of Poison Centre numbers in section 1.4 of safety data sheets (SDS). The regulatory landscape is complex with legislation constantly changing; pending decisions concerning data harmonisation and amendments to Article 45 later on in 2016. 

Our expertise is founded in research with the European Commission which resulted in a very clear understanding about the unique operations and regulations supporting each Poison Centre in Europe.

We make high level information available through a number of our resources. This includes our complimentary Poison Centre information pack and our Poison Centre compliance report; a comprehensive and tailored report designed to provide businesses the tools they need to overcome Europe’s complex hazardous product submission processes.

We have also hosted a number of webinars on Poison Centres. This means you can save time researching country specific regulations and getting up to speed with the latest EU commission changes and focus on understanding what this means for your organisation and what you need to do to ensure compliance.
