The Classification, Labelling and Packaging (CLP) Regulation 1272 was introduced in 2008 to ensure there is a high level of protection of health and the environment in the EU.
One its main aims is to determine whether a substance / mixture displays properties that lead to a hazardous classification. When toxicological data meets the classification criteria, the hazards of a substance / mixture are identified by assigning a certain hazard class and category.
Once a substance or mixture is classified, the identified hazards must be communicated to other in the supply chain, including consumers. Hazard labelling allows the hazard classification, with labels and safety data sheets, to be communicated to the user of a substance or mixture, to alert them about the presence of a hazard and the need to manage the associated risks.
CLP sets detailed criteria for the labelling elements: pictograms, signal words and standard statements for hazard, prevention, response, storage and disposal, for every hazard class and category. It also sets general packaging standards to ensure the safe supply of hazardous substances and mixtures.
