Regulation on classification, labelling & packaging of substances & mixtures

Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 came into force on 20 January 2009 and applies across the European Union. The Regulation is about the hazards of chemical substances and mixtures and how to inform others about them. It is the task of industry to establish what are the hazards of substances and mixtures before these are placed on the EU market, and to classify them in line with the identified hazards.

CLP Regulation is amending and repealing directives 67/548/EEC and 1999/45/EC after a transition period, and amending Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 (REACH).
