European Commission consultation on amending CLP Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 to introduce new hazard classes
The European Commission has opened a consultation period to gather feedback on the draft act to amend the CLP Regulation (Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008) – see Hazardous chemicals – updated rules on classification, labelling and packaging (europa.eu)
The purpose of the new draft act is to bring the CLP Regulation into line with technical and scientific progress in line with the commitments under the European Green Deal. New hazard classes are proposed for substances of very high concern due to their endocrine disrupting (ED) properties, as well as substances with persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic properties (PBT) and very persistent, very bioaccumulative properties (vPvB). Substances having probable serious effects on the environment due to their persistent, mobile and toxic (PMT) and very persistent, very mobile (vPvM) properties also require the introduction of the respective hazard classes.
The consultation period is closing on 18th October 2022 at midnight Brussels time.
