Under CLP, there is a legal obligation for suppliers to evaluate the hazards of chemicals (substances and mixtures) to be placed on the market, and to classify and label them appropriately. An option also exists for Member State Competent Authorities or industry to propose harmonised classification and labelling of a substance across Europe. Following the submission of a CLH report, ECHA organises a public consultation period of 45 days. Under this scheme, proposals have been submitted by the German and Swedish authorities and by industry to standardise the classification and labelling of:

  • diisohexyl phthalate
  • nickel sulphide
  • phenyl bis(2,4,6-trimethylbenzoyl)-phosphine oxide
