Labeling of dangerous chemical products

CLP regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 aligns previous EU legislation to identify dangerous chemicals and inform users of these dangers. It entered into force on 20 January 2009 and progressively replaced the directive on the classification and labelling of dangerous substances (67/548/EEC) and the directive on dangerous preparations (1999/45/EC). Both the directives were repealed on 1 June 2015.

The labels put on the packagings of chemical products are a source of information on their dangerousness and their aim is to highlight any risks to which you are exposed during use and the appropriate precautions to take for proper use, storage and disposal. The label’s shape, its size, the presence of specific symbols and phrases are subject to specific regulations. In this section, new labelling requirements are examined in depth.
