In accordance with obligations under the Rotterdam Convention, other Parties to the Convention should notify exports from their country to the EU of chemicals which are banned or severely restricted on their territory. These are import notifications for the EU. The import notification contains information on the date/period of export, the exporting and importing country, the name of the chemical(s) and (optionally) the CAS number. It is possible to search for import notifications by exporting and/or importing country, year, chemical name and CAS number. A refined search is available by using multiple search filters.
Note: the United Kingdom has withdrawn from the European Union on the 31 January 2020. However, in accordance with the withdrawal agreement, the United Kingdom continues to comply with the PIC regulation until the end of the transition period (31 December 2020). Therefore, the United Kingdom remains listed here as an “Importing country”.
