CLP: One regulation to rule them all – join the fellowship and have your say – ChemSec
You’ve probably seen or heard the term “CLP” before, but may not know exactly what it is. CLP is an EU chemical regulation, short for Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures, with an important, albeit somewhat hidden role in the EU policy discussions. But CLP’s time trapped is the shadows is about to end. The regulation is going to be revised into a more omnipotent framework – and you can help forge it.
A key aspect of the Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability is the principle “one substance – one assessment”. The idea going forward is that the discussions and decisions on hazardous properties of substances – currently being held and made in different fora depending on whether the substance falls under REACH, food packaging, pesticides, biocides, or another category – are all going to take place under the umbrella of CLP. Once a substance is classified under CLP, regulatory action will be triggered automatically.
