UFI and PCN Notification with ChemGes (or: brief description)

Group handling for the PCN notification

  • The UFI generator is built into ChemGes, thus providing optimal speeds. 
  • All possible combinations of data are covered.  These include but are not limited to, multiple manufacturers, mixes of multiple manufacturers for the same preparation, substance variants. 
  • ICGs (Interchangeable component groups) and SFs (Standard formulas) can be easily managed and notified.
  • MiMs (with or without UFI) are easily maintained as intermediate preparations and PDFs to send with your dossier can be saved with a substance
  • Variants, phrases and addresses, that have always been standard features are part of the dossier data
  • ChemGes identifies all manner of changes automatically, removing the need for manual involvement. 
  • EuPCSs, packaging, market placement and even colour, can be automatically allocated to dossiers, and ChemGes will output the ECHA required terminology
  • ChemGes provides for the fully automatic upload of single and bulk notifications, directly to the PCN portal.  Of course, manual notification is also available, if desired.

Data between ChemGes and ECHA, is easily managed with options such as the:

  • Import or Export of the ECHA legal entity
  • Import and the test of the S₂S key
  • Direct links to ECHA webpages, portals and documents.

The effort necessary to create a dossier is negligible, once the minor task of allocations and import of any ECHA provided data, is completed. 

As always, our support team is ready to provide assistance in using this aspect of ChemGes.
