CLP Classification, Labelling, Packaging
Chemical substances should be classified according to the new regulation on classification, labelling and packaging (CLP Regulation) by 1 December 2010.
For many substances, the CLP classification must also be notified to the European Chemicals Agency by 3 January 2011.
The new Regulation on classification, labelling and packaging will take effect in the following cases, namely if you are:
a registrant in accordance with the REACH regulation;
a manufacturer or importer of substances or mixtures (preparations) to be placed on the market;
a downstream user - namely using substances or mixtures supplied for the formulation of other products to be placed on the market, e.g. adhesives, cleaning products, paints, motor oils;
a distributor (retailer), - storing and placing on the market a substance or a mixture of other substances;
a manufacturer or importer of explosive articles or those containing intentionally released substances or those on the list of substances of very high concern;
involved in the research and development of chemical substances.
Does the CLP regulation include all substances and mixtures?
The CLP regulation includes the majority of substances and mixtures supplied to third parties. Some substances and mixtures, such as cosmetic products, are outside the scope of the CLP Regulation. Any exemptions are expressly mentioned in the Regulation.
When is it necessary to classify and label your chemical substances according to the CLP Regulation?
Substances placed on the market should be classified, labelled and packaged according to the CPL Regulation from 1st December 2010. The classification of substances on the basis of the rules laid down by the Dangerous Substances Directive (DSD) will continue until 1st June 2015.
Both the CLP and DSD classification must be cited on the safety data sheets.
