ECHA, the European Chemicals Agency, has published a guidance document  which explains the obligations under the Prior Informed Consent (PIC) Regulation and gives advice on how to comply with them. The PIC Regulation (EU 649/2012) enforces the Rotterdam Convention on toxic and hazardous chemicals and regulates trade in these substances.

In order to comply with the guidance from ECHA, companies trading in these chemicals as well as enforcement authorities, need to be able to unambiguously identify them. This requires that appropriate laboratory testing may need to be available to confirm the identity of any substance which falls under the scope of this Regulation, and the Convention.
