…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 dossier, ECHA organises a public consultation period of 45 days. Under this scheme, proposals have been submitted by the Finnish authorities to standardise the classification and labelling of propiconazole.

..New online tools available to submit information to poison centres

Under a new draft CLP Implementing Regulation, any importers or downstream users placing hazardous mixtures on the market will be responsible for submitting information to relevant poison centres. In order to harmonise this process, ECHA has introduced a draft format for submission and a draft online application (PC editor) on its new poison centres website.
