In the authorised area of the product register for chemicals the logged-in users/notifiers can see the status of all of their own “products” in the product search.
There are three possible status descriptors:
- In process
means that the product is still being processed by the notifier (company).
- Under examination
The product has been successfully uploaded by the notifier and is now being examined by the Notification Authority Chemicals.
The product is OK and visible in the public product register.
For preparations the ‘qualified’ status does not guarantee that the notification was correct.
According to self-regulation the Swiss notifier i.e. the manufacturer or importer of a preparation is responsible in all cases for the correct contents of a notification. This is also the case if a foreign supplier has made the notification on the internet on behalf of the Swiss notifier. The Notification Authority, if need be, checks notifications for their completeness; further checks are made on a random basis by the cantonal chemicals centres.
