Introductory information


CLP Regulation – Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council as of 16th December 2008 on classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures, amending and repealing Directives 67/548/EEC and 1999/45/EC, and amending Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006.

The regulation entered into force 20 days after its publication, i.e. on January 20, 2009. From this moment, Title XI of the Reach Regulation ceased to be binding. Harmonized classification contained in Attachment I to the Hazardous Substances Directive was transferred to Table 3.2. in Attachment VI to the CLP Regulation.

CLP introduces the elements of GHS (Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals).

PCC Rokita S.A. participates actively in implementing the CLP Regulation. We classify chemicals encompassed by the above legal status and perform changes in data sheets and on labels within the required deadlines, as well as notify new classification and labelling to the Classification and Labelling Inventory of the European Chemicals Agency.
