Information contained in import notifications – in progress

All import notifications since 2003 are published in this portal however, for now, some import notification details (e.g. name of the chemical, EC, CAS and whether the chemical is subject to PIC) may be incomplete. We are currently working to resolve the issue on the missing data.

In accordance with obligations under the United Nations Rotterdam Convention, of which the PIC Regulation is the EU implementation, other Parties to the Convention should notify exports from their country to the EU for chemicals which are banned or severely restricted on their territory. These are import notifications from the perspective of the EU.

The public details of all such notifications are available in this dataset here. Details of the import notifications are published in several views, for convenience, as follows:

Import notifications

The import notifications view shows all import notifications, giving the identity of the chemical / mixture / article imported, the origin and destination countries, and the import year. Clicking on the identity shown links to more details.

These additional details will show the content(s) of the imported material subject to the Rotterdam Convention (or the PIC Regulation where applicable). For example, in the case of a mixture if there are three relevant constituents then all three will be shown.

Summary by origin

This view gives an overview of import notifications made by country of origin – i.e. by the non-EU member state from which the import was made to the EU.

Summary by destination

This view gives an overview of import notifications made by country of destination – i.e. by the EU country to which the import was made.

Note relating to Brexit

The United Kingdom withdrew from the European Union (EU) on 31 January 2020; however, in accordance with the Withdrawal Agreement, EU law continued to apply to that territory until 31 December 2020.

In searching for import notifications made to the United Kingdom until 31 December 2020, please note that the United Kingdom is listed as an “Importing Country”.

As of 1 January 2021, a distinction is drawn between the “United Kingdom (Great Britain)” and the “United Kingdom (Northern Ireland)”. This reflects the Protocol on Ireland / Northern Ireland – and the fact that the PIC Regulation continues to apply to Northern Ireland. Specifically, as of 1 January 2021, the “United Kingdom (Great Britain)” is listed as an “Exporting Country” for imports to the EU from the United Kingdom (Great Britain). By contrast, the "United Kingdom (Northern Ireland)” is listed as an “Importing Country”.
