Revision of the Regulation on Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures (CLP) - Position of the European metals industry

The CLP Inception Impact Assessment (IIA) stipulates that the CLP Regulation together with the REACH Regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of chemicals are the key EU legislations on chemicals.

It should be acknowledged that the CLP Regulation has gone beyond its role of setting out the hazard classification of chemicals and how to communicate those hazards to consumers and workers. The CLP Regulation is now at the centre of a series of chemicals management pieces of legislation, in particular on risk management.

Hence, it is important to ensure its transparency and efficiency, avoid ambiguity, and have the best modalities for the involvement of all stakeholders, i.e., have clear roles/rules and boundaries.
