REACH and CLP – What is CLP?

The EU recently adopted a new Regulation on classification, labeling and packaging of substances and mixtures (the CLP regulation), which will have implications for all supply chains exporting to Europe.

The CLP regulation will require companies to classify, label and package chemical substances and mixtures according to new rules, in addition to notifying the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) of their classification. The new act will complement the REACH Regulation on the registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction of chemicals.

The CLP Regulation as published in the Official Journal of the European Union is available at the EURLEX website.
