What You Should Know About the CLP Regulation

In August, the German Chemical Industry Association (Verband der Chemischen Industrie) published a brochure (available in German only), that contains updated and easily understood information on the Regulation on Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures (CLP). Among other points, it covers adoption of the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) in the European Union’s CLP, the importance of Annex VI (list of substances), classification and labeling according to Article 40, respectively 41 of the CLP, and notification to Poison Information Centers according to Article 45 of the CLP. The authors also describe how new classification and labeling affect downstream regulations and discuss the differences between European and international GHS. The document contains many useful links to additional information.

If you have questions that the brochure does not cover, please contact us at clp-info@kft.de.
