With the enactment of the Classification, Labelling and Packaging Regulation (also known as CLP, EC/1272/2008), all manufacturers and importers of chemicals into the European Community were obliged to notify the classification and labelling of manufactured and imported substances before the 3rd of January 2011.
Those companies submitting a REACH registration automatically notified the registered chemical through the REACH process.
However, those companies that manufacture or import in a lower tonnage band and hence have a later REACH registration deadline or did not submit a REACH dossier as the substance is registered under the Biocidal Products Directive (BPD) or Plant Protection Products Directive (PPPD) still had to notify the classification and labelling to ECHA before the 3rd of January 2011.
Here we include the classification and labelling information for the chemicals monitored by Euro Chlor. These have been agreed to by the REACH registration groups and/or BPD registration groups. While for many of our substances the classification is somewhat harmonised under CLP, industry is required to assess further endpoints and use more stringent classification if required.
