Under EU 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 (MSCAs) or industry to propose harmonised classification and labelling of a substance across Europe. Following the submission of a harmonised classification and labelling (CLH) proposal, ECHA organises a public consultation period of 45 days. Under this scheme, CLH reports have been submitted by the Danish, Finnish, German, Swedish and UK authorities to standardise the classification and labelling of:

  • citral
  • dioctyltin dilaurate
  • ethylene glycol monobutyl ether
  • flupyradifurone
  • geraniol
  • hymexazol
  • penflufen
