GB PIC: annual reporting of exports and imports

If you export or import PIC-listed chemicals, you must report quantities from the previous calendar year to the Designated National Authority (DNA) by 31 March. The DNA for the GB PIC regime is HSE.

Annual reporting of quantities is required under Article 10 of the GB PIC Regulation. You must provide details of both exports from and imports into Great Britain, including movement of PIC chemicals to and from Northern Ireland, and provide the exact quantities in kilograms (kg).

For EU exports and imports you do not need to indicate the specific EU country, however it would be helpful if you can indicate where the movement of the chemical was to, or from, NI.

For mixtures and articles, report only the quantity of PIC chemical within the mixture or article.


The following are exempt from the reporting requirement and should not be included:

  • Special reference identification number (Special RIN) requests for exports in quantities not exceeding 10kg per year to each importing country for the purpose of research or analysis
  • Imports for research and analysis in quantities not exceeding 10kg per year from any country

How to report

Complete the appropriate template below and email your report to [email protected] including the following details in the subject line of your email: GB PIC - Annual Reporting - Article 10 - year - company name.

If you did not export a particular PIC-listed chemical for which you submitted an export notification during the previous calendar year, please respond to confirm this as a NIL return.

Anonymised data will be published yearly as the annual report of GB PIC chemicals.
