EU | Amendment of CLP Regulation as regards information relating to emergency health response

Your substances


Title of document
Draft Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) amending Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council on classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures as regards information relating to emergency health response (5 pages + annex 6 pages, in English)

According to Article 45(1) of the CLP Regulation, Member States' appointed bodies shall receive information from importers and downstream users on the hazardous chemical mixtures they place on the market. Commission Regulation (EU) No 2017/542 amended the CLP Regulation by adding an Annex harmonising the information to be provided relating to emergency health response ("Annex VIII"). Annex VIII was adopted in March 2017 and will become applicable on 1 January 2020. The Commission is proposing an amendment to Annex VIII before its applicability date that would contain uncontentious clarifications of the text, so as to streamline interpretation, improve internal coherence, and mitigate some unintended consequences made apparent only after the adoption of the Annex.
