CLP for all dangerous substances
CLP is a mandatory European Union regulation which requires, amongst other obligations, the clear identification of products containing dangerous chemicals. The EU’s CLP regulation is based on the United Nation’s Globally Harmonised System for chemical substances and, from June 2015 onwards, compliance to CLP is required for dangerous chemicals and mixtures in all EU member states. Every substance listed as dangerous, and every mix containing one of these dangerous substances, also needs to carry a CLP label as of June 2015.
To warn employees, handlers, customers and everyone who could get exposed, a system of pictograms and safety messages has been developed to label dangerous chemicals and chemical mixtures. Almost all chemicals in the EU need to adhere to the CLP-identification language to ensure the risks of exposure are equally understandable throughout Europe, because these chemicals are part of everyone’s daily life.
A compliant CLP Label shows:
• Hazard pictograms
• A relevant signal word
• Hazard statements
• Precautionary statements
• Remedies after exposure
• Supplier contact information
• Nominal quantity of substance or mixture
• Product identifiers
