Classification and Labelling Rules in the European Union (EU)

Classification and labeling rules in the EU are complex, and Intertek has the expertise to guide you through those complexities.

The rules for dangerous substances are defined in 67/548/EEC and its amendments, and the rules for dangerous preparations are defined in 1999/45/EC, as last amended by 2006/8/EC. As defined by applicable laws, it is the responsibility of everybody who places substances on the EU market to self-classify the substance if there is no EU-harmonized classification according to Annex I.

Changes in classification and labeling can be expected with the implementation of the Global Harmonized System (GHS)
