Two new European Regulations are already having an impact on the way chemicals are supplied, packaged and labelled.
Although the European Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 on classification, labeling and packaging of substances and mixtures – the CLP Regulation – came into force in all EU member states, including the UK, on 20 January 2010 it will will replace the Chemicals (Hazard Information and Packaging for Supply) Regulations 2009 – CHIP – from 1 June 2015
A few changes to look out for
New hazard pictogramS
Although the CLP hazard pictograms are very similar to the CHIP hazard symbols, they have a new shape, new design and a new colour. A brief description is given here for information purposes only. More>>
