EEB | CLP explainer on essential oils

Your substances


Around the ongoing negotiations for the revision of the CLP Regulation, various lobby organisations have recently published position papers rejecting part of the Commission’s proposal, regarding impacts notably on the essential oils business, serving uses especially in fragrances and cosmetics.

These papers generally do not provide precise references to elements of the CLP regulation or the proposed revision text; yet they attract considerable attention. In the present paper, EEB, HEAL and ChemSec attempt to shed light on what those organisations mean and how this relates to the present legal text and to the current situation in practice.
