CLP for Rubber Goods & Tyres

In December 2008 the European Parliament and the Council of Ministers adopted the new Regulation (1272/2008) on Classification, Labelling and Packaging of substances and mixtures (CLP), which aligned existing EU legislation with the United Nations Globally Harmonised System (GHS). Using internationally agreed classification criteria and labelling elements will facilitate trade and contribute towards global efforts to protect people and the environment from the hazardous effects of chemicals.

ETRMA is paying particular attention to analysing the potential effects in the supply chain of the recent substance classification notification deadline (1 December 2010) and is preparing for the 2015 notification deadlines for mixtures.
