Classification, SDS, labelling

Classification, SDS, labelling logo

Substances and mixtures placed on the European market must strictly comply with Regulation (EC) No.1272/2008 (CLP). The rules of classification, packaging and labelling are constantly evolving: substances are periodically re-assessed (Adaptations to Technical Progress – ATP) and their harmonized classification must be applied.

The Safety Data Sheet (SDS) is a mandatory document according to REACH (Regulation (EC) No.1907/2006) and is an effective tool to provide information to users of substances and mixtures: its format and content are defined in Regulation (EU) No.2015/830. The preparation of a SDS requires multidisciplinary knowledge: classification, safety and risk management for workers, physico-chemistry, (eco)toxicology, transport of dangerous goods, etc. The SDS should remain concise and understandable by the recipient and must be regularly updated.

The label of a product is also a means of communicating hazards, the CLP regulation defines its content and specific regulations may require additional mandatory indications depending on the use of the product.
