The European Commission has recently published the 14th adaptation to technical progress (ATP) to the CLP Regulation (1272/2008). This includes harmonised classification and labelling requirements for nearly thirty chemicals, including cobalt (for several human health hazards, and aquatic toxicity), ethylene oxide (for several physical and human health hazards), titanium dioxide (as a carcinogen via the inhalation route), and various pesticides. The rules of the new ATP become mandatory on 9 September 2021.
