…New proposals for harmonised classification and labelling

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 Austrian, Dutch, German, Italian, Spanish, Swedish and UK authorities, and by industry, to standardise the classification and labelling of:

  • Acid Black 210, sodium salt
  • carboxin
  • cobalt
  • dibutyltin bis(2,4-pentanedionate)
  • ethanol, 2,2′-iminobis-, N-(C13-15-branched and linear alkyl) derivatives
  • metaflumizone
  • 2,2′-methylenebis(6-(2H-benzotriazol-2-yl)-4-(1,1,3,3-tetramethylbutyl)phenol)
  • nickel bis(sulphamidate)
  • 2-phenylhexanenitrile
  • pyridate
