Fifth Amendment to Annex I of Regulation (EC) No. 689/2008 is published

Commission Regulation (EU) No. 834/2011 is the fifth amendment to Annex I of Regulation (EC) No. 689/2008 concerning the export and import of dangerous chemicals and applies from 01 October 2011.

Six entries have been created/deleted. The names of the affected chemicals are as follows, but you should refer to the new Annexes to confirm their identities.

The Fifth Amendment:

Adds five substances

to Parts 1 and/or 2 of Annex I of the Regulation. This means that the Health and Safety Executive, as the Designated National Authority, must be Notified of the first export of these substances each calendar year and that explicit consent will be required before they can be exported outside the EU. Note, 1,3-dichloropropene is already in Part 1(but has now been added to Part 2) so is already subject to export notification requirements.

And deletes the entry for one substance

from Part 1 of Annex I. This means it is no longer subject to the export notification requirements of Regulation 689/2008. The general export requirements, which apply to exports of all chemicals, will continue to apply.

The European Commission will update their EDEXIM database (concerning the export and import of dangerous chemicals) shortly to incorporate these amendments.
