EC UNVEILS PROPOSAL TO REVISE EU CHEMICAL LABELLING RULES

On 19th December 2022, the European Commission proposed a revised Regulation on the classification, labelling and packaging of chemicals (CLP) and introduced five new hazard classes for endocrine disruptors and other harmful substances. The addition of these new hazard classes means that relevant chemical manufacturers will need to update the labels on their packaging, Safety Data Sheets, and REACH registration dossiers when selling chemicals on the EU market.

However, it is the proposed changes to label formatting that could have far wider implications for the rest of the chemical industry. These proposed amendments, aimed at improving the communication of chemical hazards, include significant changes such as minimal font sizes and changes to the layout of labels.
