Deadlines of CLP regulation


 

CLP schedule

 

The CLP Regulation entered into force on 20 January 2009. However, not all the provisions of the CLP Regulation will be obligatory promptly: There are transitional provisions set out in Article 61 of CLP regulation which define two target dates which affect the classification, hazard communication and packaging of hazardous  substances and mixtures, namely 1 December 2010 and 1 June 2015.

 

From 20 January 2009 the following rules apply:


  • until 1 December 2010, substances must continue to be classified, labelled and packaged in accordance with DSD. However, a substance may also be classified, labelled and packaged according to CLP before this date. When this is done, the labelling and packaging provisions of DSD shall no longer apply to the substance. This means that labelling and packaging must respect the provisions of CLP;
  • until 1 June 2015, mixtures must continue to be classified, labelled and packaged  in accordance with DPD. However, a mixture may also be classified, labelled and  packaged according to CLP before this date. When this is done, the labelling and  packaging provisions of DPD shall no longer apply to the mixture. This means that labelling and packaging must respect the provisions of CLP;
  • until 1 June 2015, the classification of a substance according to DSD must be  provided in the SDS. This will both apply to SDS for substances on their own and to Safety Data Sheets for mixtures containing these substances;
  • until 1 December 2010, if a substance is classified, labelled and packaged  according to CLP, the CLP classification must appear on the Safety Data Sheet,  alongside the classification based on the DSD. However, a supplier may choose  to identify the CLP classification of a substance in advance of applying CLP to it in full. Where this happens, the supplier may include this information on the  accompanying Safety Data Sheet, under the ‘other information’ heading.
  • Until 1 June 2015, the classification of a mixture according to DPD must be  provided in the Safety Data Sheet;
  • Until 1 June 2015, if a mixture is classified, labelled and packaged according to  CLP, the CLP classification must appear on the Safety Data Sheet, alongside the  classification based on the DPD. However, a supplier may choose to identify the  CLP classification of a mixture in advance of applying CLP to it in full. Where this happens, the supplier may include this information on the  accompanying Safety Data Sheet, under the ‘other information’ heading.
  • From 20 January 2009 Title V starts to apply, so manufacturers, importers and  downstream users can submit proposals for harmonised classification to the  Agency (CLP Article 37(2)) and shall submit a proposal to a Member State  Competent Authority in case they have new information which may lead to change  in harmonised classification and labelling (CLP Article 37(6)).

 

From 1 December 2010 the following rules shall apply:


  • substances must be classified in accordance with both DSD and CLP;
  • substances must be labelled and packaged in accordance with CLP only, but  substances already classified, labelled and packaged according to DSD and  placed on the market (i.e. “on the shelves”) before 1 December 2010 will only  have to be re-labelled and re-packaged by 1 December 2012;
  • until 1 June 2015, mixtures must continue to be classified, labelled and packaged  in accordance with DPD. However, a mixture may also be classified, labelled and  packaged according to CLP before this date. When this is done, the labelling and packaging provisions of DPD shall no longer apply to the mixture. This means  that labelling and packaging must respect the provisions of CLP.
  • Until 1 June 2015, the classification of a substance according to DSD must be  provided in the Safety Data Sheet, in addition to the CLP classification. This will  both apply to Safety Data Sheets for substances on their own and to Safety Data  Sheets for mixtures containing these substances.
  • Until 1 June 2015, the classification of a mixture according to DPD must be  provided in the Safety Data Sheet.
  • Until 1 June 2015, if a mixture is classified, labelled and packaged according to  CLP, the CLP classification must appear on the Safety Data Sheet, alongside the  classification based on the DPD. However, a supplier may choose to identify the  CLP classification of a mixture in advance of applying CLP to it in full. Where this happens, the supplier may include this information on the  accompanying Safety Data Sheet, under the ‘other information’ heading.


From 1 June 2015 the following rules shall apply:


  • substances must be classified in accordance with CLP only;
  • mixtures must be classified, labelled and packaged in accordance with CLP only,  but mixtures already classified, labelled and packaged according to DPD and  placed on the market (i.e. “on the shelves”) before 1 June 2015 will only have to  be re-labelled and re-packaged by 1 June 2017; and
  • substance and mixture classifications according to CLP must be provided in the  Safety Data Sheet.
