EU exporters are now required to notify their intentions to export 35 additional hazardous chemicals following an amendment to the EU’s Prior Informed Consent (PIC) Regulation. The new rules start applying on 1 November 2023.
In addition to the export notification, most of these chemicals will also require an explicit consent from the importing country before exports can take place. Furthermore, four chemicals that were previously subject only to an export notification, will now also require an explicit consent.
Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2023/1656 of 16 June 2023 amending Regulation (EU) No 649/2012 of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards the listing of pesticides and industrial chemicals
