What is CLP?
CLP Regulation or CLP as it is now known is the new EU legislation on classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures. It is being brought in to replace the old DPD classification system currently in use. CLP has been designed to provide a system to characterise the hazardous properties of substances and mixtures and ensure that such information is communicated consistently through the supply chain.
Who is affected and when?
The CLP Legislation is directly applicable to suppliers who manufacture, import, use or distribute chemical substances and mixtures. A substance or mixture contained in packaging has to be labelled according to the CLP rules where:
The substance or mixture is classified as hazardous
A mixture, even if not classified as hazardous, is addressed in Part 2 of Annex II to CLP.
In cases where a mixture has already been classified, labelled and packaged according to CLP before 1 June 2015, only the CLP label shall appear, and not the label according to DPD.
The deadline for mixture classification, incorporating labelling and packaging is 1st June 2015 according to the CLP rules.
