SDS and labelling of chemicals (GHS Europe!!)

Global Harmonized System of classification and labelling of chemicals (GHS)

Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP Regulation or CLP) is the new EU legislation on classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures. It entered into force on 20 January 2009 in the European Union and it is directly applicable to suppliers who manufacture, import, use or distribute chemical substances and mixtures. The new Regulation will replace the provisions of the Dangerous Substances Directive 67/548/EEC (DSD) and the Dangerous Preparations Directive 1999/45/EC (DPD) in a stepwise approach; the latter directives will finally be repealed on 1 June 2015.

In general, the CLP label shall display the label elements which are taken over from the United Nations Globally Harmonized System of classification and labelling of chemicals (UN GHS), i.e. the new pictograms, signal word, hazard and precautionary statements, in order to reflect the assigned classifications of a substance or mixture. At the same time CLP retains some of the existing labelling concepts of DSD and DPD, such as the small packaging exemptions.

Hazard and precautionary statements Hazard statements (H) replace the Risk (R) phrases and Precautionary statements (P) replace the Safety phrases (S) on labels and safety data sheets.
