The Impact of the European Poison Centers on Global Organizations

Thursday, September 27 | 1:30 PM – 2:30 PM

Learning Level: Competent | Topic: Global Regulations

The regulations for poison center notification within Europe for organizations putting mixtures on the market are complex and difficult to achieve. They are made even more complicated due to the harmonization effort which effects notifications from 2020, but does not excuse organizations from notifying their products today which is currently a legislative requirement. This session will review the regulations now and in the future, what organizations should do, and the current cost of non-compliance using examples of enforcement across various member states. The best process to follow to develop a strategic ‘battle plan’ to complete notifications, considering risk of enforcement, cost of notification, implications on Intellectual Property, etc. will also be outlined.

Learning Objectives

  1. Understand what the key requirements are on their business today, and where there are gaps in compliance.
  2. Understand the considerations to make when developing a poison center compliance strategy.
  3. Understand what recommended activity can be undertaken right now to both mitigate non-compliance risks and prepare for the 2020 harmonization efforts.
