Coatings and transport: ECHA CLP guidance

The new ECHA guideline on labelling and packaging includes the clarification that transport packaging does not need to carry CLP labels. We spoke to Loes Brust and Janice Robinson of CEPE's Transport Committee about this success for the group and other current projects.

What is the current status on the IMDG code harmonisation of the viscous flammable liquid exemption?

Loes Brust and Janice Robinson: The harmonisation of the viscous flammable liquid exemption this summer was a great success for us. While the exemption was 450 l in the UN Model Regulations and for road and rail transport, due to the International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) code transport by sea was limited to 30 l. Companies can make use of the new higher limit from 2019 on.
