The European product categorisation system (EuPCS) has been recently updated.
The changes include:
- Splitting the category ‘e-liquids and mixtures for electronic cigarettes (PC-ELQ)’ into ‘e-liquids for electronic cigarettes PC-ELQ-1’ and ‘Mixtures for e-liquids PC-ELQ-2’
- New categories for ‘Medical devices for cleaning and disinfection (PC-MED-1)’, ‘Other medical devices (PC-MED-OTH)’ and ‘Alloys PC-TEC-25’
- Merging pyrotechnic categories ‘PC-PYR-1’ to ‘PC-PYR-4’, and ‘PC-PYR-OTH’ into one category: ‘Pyrotechnic products (PC-PYR)’
EuPCS will be made available as a tool for dossier preparation in October, together with the next version of IUCLID. An updated practical guide is also available to support the categorization of mixtures based on their intended use.
