How to report hazardous substances and materials
In the Product Registry information is saved on chemical products, that are manufactured in or exported to Denmark.
If you manufacture or export a product to Denmark that fall under the obligation to notify, these products must be notified to the Product Registry.
Log in to the Product Registry
If you want to log in for the first time as a foreign company, please contact the Product Registry to get a user profile at:
You have to send the following information for your user profile:
- Name and email address of the user
- Full name and address and country of the company
- Cell phone number (to receive a SMS code when you log on to the system).
If your company has a Danish CVR-number, you must use your NemID to log in.
The Product will receive a PR number at once either when the substance or the material has been notified in the Product Registry or as soon as the importer have accepted the import.
You must ensure that the PR number is stated on the packaging of the substance or the material no later than one year after you have received it.
Furthermore, you must include the PR number in the product’s safety data sheet (instructions) in item 1.1.: ”Product identifier”, or in item 15: ”Information regarding regulation”, according to requirements in Annex II (15.1) of the REACH regulation for information on national regulatory status.
A PR number is not an approval of the substance or material - it only serves as proof that it has been notified to the Product Registry.
Foreign manufacturers can notify substances and materials
A foreign company can notify a substance or material instead of the Danish importer. This is done as a standard notification. The foreign company must state the CVR nos. of the Danish importers for standard notifications.
The Danish importer(s) will automatically receive a message in their official digital mailbox (e-Boks), where they will be asked to confirm the import of the substance or the material.
It is also possible for a foreign company to make a raw material notification. Then the raw material PR-number can be used as a component in the composition of other companies’ product notifications.
The foreign manufacturers has the same obligation to update the information as a Danish notifier.
In addition, every other year, the Product Registry will ask the Danish importer to submit information regarding the actual quantities imported for standard notifications.
Updating of notifications
You must update information regarding a registered product if there are significant changes to the information you have previously submitted. This could be changes in the composition, changes in the labeling, and change of importer or adding new importer or if the import or manufacture of the substances and materials are terminated.
For example the information regarding a registered substance or material must be updated if the classification and labeling is made according to the CLP Regulation instead of the Danish Environmental Protection Agency's regulations.
You must also update the Product Registry if the legal status of the company changes, e.g. if the Danish importer is issued with a new CVR number or your company changes name, location or changing of users.
Updates must be made online
You have to log in to the Product Registry via our webpage to register the changes. Once you have logged in you can search for the product in question and supply the new information.
