CLP or CLP Regulation stands for Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 on classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures. It came into force on 20 January 2009 and applies across the European Union.
The CLP regulation effectively replaces the directives
As of 1 December 2010, substances now must be classified under both DSD and the new CLP and labelled and packaged under CLP!
Also until 3 January 2011, substances must be notified to the CLP inventory.
Mixtures may currently (until 2015) still be classified, labelled and packaged according to the old DPD. However, a transition to CLP is already possible.
EBRC offers full scientific and technical support on the classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures.
