Commission Regulation (EU) No 167/2014 amends Annex I of Regulation (EC) No 689/2008 concerning the export and import of dangerous chemicals and applies from 1 May 2014.

NB    From 1 March 2014, Regulation (EU) No 649/2012 replaces Regulation (EC) No 689/2008.  Both of these regulations are commonly known as the EU Prior Informed Consent (PIC) Regulation.

The amendment:

NB   Although Chloropicrin was also included in the Commission’s proposals for these changes to Annex I, consideration of its amendment is not yet complete. This amendment therefore makes no change to Chloropicrin’s entry and it remains listed in Part 1 and 2 of Annex I of the EU PIC Regulation. This means it continues to be subject to the export notification and explicit consent requirements of the EU PIC Regulation.  

The European Commission has updated their EDEXIM database (concerning the export and import of dangerous/hazardous chemicals) to incorporate these amendments.
