Comment on amendments in CLP

Innehållsförteckning:

The European chemicals agency, Echa, and the European Commission give you the opportunity to comment on proposals for amendments to the CLP Regulation through the so-called consultation procedure. The consultations are public, which means that anyone who wants to can submit comments. The aim is to gather views and gather available scientific information before decisions are made. If you or your company have such information, it is important that you participate in the consultation.

Current consultations on delegated acts

Through the European Commission's consultation on proposals for so-called delegated acts, you will have the opportunity to submit comments on proposals for amendments to the CLP Regulation. The aim is to gather views and gather available scientific information before decisions are made. If you or your company have such information, it is important that you participate in the consultation. Such a consultation normally lasts for 4 weeks.

The Commission propose four new hazard classes in CLP

Consultations are currently under way on the Commission's proposal to introduce four new hazard classes into CLP:

  • Endocrine disrupting property for human health
  • Endocrine disrupting property for the environment
  • Persistent, Bioaccumulative and Toxic properties (PBT or vPvB)
  • Persistent, Mobile and Toxic properties (PMT or vPvM) (v stands for 'very')

The criteria in each class include classification and labelling for both substances and mixtures. The consultation is open until 18 October (midnight Swedish time).

You can reach the consultation to provide feedback here:

Recent consultations on harmonised classification and labelling

The list of substances with harmonised EU common classification and labelling is set out in Annex VI to CLP. The Annex is regularly updated when new substances are added or when substances receive a change in harmonised classification. All proposals for new or amended harmonised classifications for substances are published for consultation on the website of the European Chemicals Agency, Echa.

The public consultations give you the opportunity to comment on proposals for harmonised classification and labelling of substances in the CLP Regulation. The consultation for a topic normally lasts for 60 days and you can find forms to submit your comments by clicking on the blue "Details" box in the right column for each topic in the table on ECHA's website which can be accessed via the links below.
