EUROPE: New tool to manage hazardous chemicals trade
The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has launched a new IT tool to help manage and monitor the export and import of hazardous chemicals.
ePIC will replace the European Commission's EDEXIM tool, which is used for operations under the Prior Informed Consent Regulation (PIC).
The new tool, the ECHA says, will enable it along with exporters, importers, member states, the EC and customs to manage the export and import of very hazardous chemicals. It will also allow information to be securely exchanged between the various groups.
It was developed to ensure the requirements under the revised PIC Regulation are supported by a comprehensive IT system.
