CLP/GHS classification & labelling

Suppliers of chemical products have a responsibility to ensure that any hazards are clearly and concisely communicated to customers down the supply chain.  If you place a hazardous substance or mixture on the European market, you have a responsibility to notify the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) of its classification and labelling within one month of placing the chemical product on the market for the first time.

In Europe, suppliers must classify, label and package their products in accordance with the CLP Regulation.  This regulation implements the Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS), which provides a basis for internationally-harmonised hazard communication using standard statements and pictograms.  Classifications made under previous legislation (i.e. the Dangerous Substances Directive) should be re-evaluated and translated into CLP classifications.

We can help you manage your hazard communications from both a regulatory and business perspective, including:

  • Identification and scoping of your obligations under the CLP Regulation;
  • Collation and evaluation of available hazard data;
  • Classification and labelling of substances and mixtures according to CLP criteria;
  • Notification to the C&L Inventory;
  • Preparation of (extended-) safety data sheets and CLP hazard labels.
