New informational ECHA website dedicated to poison centres

Information for poison centres: the new ECHA website

poison_centres.jpgECHA launched a new website aimed at informing the public on the theme of poison centres.

This new website gives an overview on what poison centres are and on the tools available for data submission to European poison centres. At the same time, this new website gives a preview on the future developments of European poison centres, more specifically:

  • Information regarding the submission of information to poison centres through the XML format, still in draft but available for consultation.
  • A short description of the automatic UFI generator (Unique Formula Identifier). Expected availability: end of 2016.
  • A small note regarding the Product Categorisation System (PCS).

The website also gives a series of useful links to various sources of information, such as a list of national poison centres for various European countries.
