CLP

WHAT IS CLP?

C= Classification

L= Labelling

P= Packaging

It is the acronym for the new European Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 on Classification, Labelling and Packaging of chemical substances and mixtures.

CLP Regulation (came into force on 20 January 2009) aims to apply United Nation's (UN's) Globally Harmonized System (GHS) criteria.

For United Nation's detailed GHS information;

The companies that produce or import the substances & mixtures in EU will have to classify, label and package their products under CLP rules after a transition period.

From 1st December 2010, substances must be classified, labelled and packaged in accordance with CLP. There is an exception for the substances already classified, labelled and packaged according to DSD and placed on the market (i.e. "on the shelves") before 1st December 2010. These products will only have to be re-labelled and re-packaged by 1st December 2012.

From 1st June 2015, mixtures must be classified, labelled and packaged in accordance with CLP. Again there is an exception for the mixtures already classified, labelled and packaged according to DPD and placed on the market (i.e. "on the shelves") before 1st June 2015 and they will only have to be re-labelled and re-packaged by 1st June 2016.
