European Classification, Labelling and Packaging Regulation Services

Intertek provides the complete solution for compliance with the EU CLP Regulation (1272/2008) for classification, labelling, and packaging requirements.

The European Union’s Classification, Labelling and Packaging (CLP) Regulation (EC)1272/2008 was enacted to protect workers, consumers and the environment from hazardous chemicals. The CLP Regulation incorporates the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals criteria and also compliments the EU REACH Regulation.

The CLP Regulation applies to your business if you manufacture, import, use or distribute chemical substances or mixtures into the EU market. Compliance with the new EU regulation managing classification, notification and product safety labelling is required for most substances, irrespective of tonnage and use. Meeting the CLP requirements are prerequisites to market access to the EU and will need to be addressed by your business alongside the challenging REACH deadlines already facing companies on the EU market.

Important CLP Deadlines:

  • December 1, 2010 – classification, labelling, & packaging of substances
  • January 3, 2011 – Report certain substances to Classification and Labelling (C&L) Inventory unless already submitted to ECHA as part of a REACH registration process.
  • June 1, 2015 – classification, labelling, & packaging of mixtures
