During the Q1 reporting season, companies must provide not just quantity information but also details on any and all non-EU based companies with which they traded PIC-regulated chemicals.
The deadline to submit the above information is 31st of March. ECHA would like exporters and importers to report sooner rather than later.
Technology update: ePIC 1.1
With the release of ePIC 1.1 on 8 January 2015, industry users will be able to generate and submit reports to their relevant Designated National Authorities. In the new version of ePIC, for most users a draft version of the reports is automatically generated and pre-filled by ePIC ("to the extent possible," says ECHA) with data available in the system.
Once the reports have been finalized, they can be sent to the Designated National Authorities for aggregation on country level.
The ePIC system will be down from January 7th at 09:00 (EET) until January 8th at 09:00 (EET).
PIC Guidance can be found here. Tools for managing compliance exist via third party vendors.
