What is the UFI code and how does it work
In accordance with Commission Regulation (EU) 2017/542 amending Regulation (EC) no 1272/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council, a new product labeling element will be introduced on 1 January 2020. It is an alphanumeric code called the Unique Formula Identifier (UFI). The unified identifier consists of 16 characters. The aim of UFI is to simplify product identification when making emergency calls to Toxicology Centers and to establish a clear link between information provided to poison centers and the product (mixture) that is being placed on the market. The PCN (Poisson centers notification) system will be used to provide information.
