Regulatory Services on CLP
The CLP regulation (EC No. 1272/2008) sets the rules for classification and labelling of chemicals. It aims to determine whether a substance or mixture displays properties that lead to a classification as hazardous.
Once such properties are identified and the substance or mixture is classified accordingly, manufacturers, importers, downstream users and distributors of substances or mixtures, as well as producers and importers of certain specific articles should communicate the identified hazards of these substances or mixtures to other actors in the supply chain, including to consumers.
As REACH and CLP are closely interlinked, it is recommended to coordinate the implementation of CLP together with processes related to obligations under REACH.
