The latest edition of the British Safety Council’s magazine, Safety Management, features an article by Anita Lloyd on the EU Classification, Labelling and Packaging (CLP) regime for chemicals.
From 1 June 2015, companies are obliged to use the CLP system for chemical substances and mixtures. This will require significant changes to be made to labels, safety data sheets and packaging, but it will also change the hazard classifications of some products. CLP also impacts other regimes, such as hazardous waste management and storage of dangerous products (SEVESO/COMAH sites), where changes are also being made from June 2015 to bring those classification systems and thresholds into line with CLP.
The article is entitled “Preparing for the new CLP regime” and can be accessed here.
