Information the Poisons Centre needs
We ask for information about all chemical products on the market, also the harmless ones. All the constituents present in the final product (except impurities less than 1 %) should be declared by their chemical names and CAS numbers. The use of group or class names is acceptable when all substances in the group have similar toxicological properties e.g. anionic surfactants, non-ionic surfactants (but not cationic surfactants), enzymes, perfumes or colours.
All the constituents that are classified as very toxic, toxic, corrosive or harmful should be declared with the actual concentration. For other ingredients we can accept the following concentration intervals 0-1%, 1-5%, 5-10%, 10-20%, 20-30%, 30-50%, 50-75%, and over 75%. It is also important to provide the pH value if appropriate. Other characteristics of the product that could be of importance when giving advice in poisoning cases are colour, solubility, the size and design of the package etc.
Please make sure that the name of the product in the product information is exactly the same as on the package. This is very important since it is the product name that is indicated when calling the Poisons Centre after poisoning incidents.
To facilitate for the Poisons Centre in handling product information, please specify the field of application of the products (e.g. cleaning agent, paint, sealing compound) and also whether they are for household or industrial use.
