EU Chemical Packaging Regulations 2009

EU member states have agreed to adopt the globally harmonised system of classification and labelling of chemicals (GHS) across the EU through a direct-acting regulation, the European regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 on classification, labelling and packaging (CLP) of substances and mixtures.

The CLP regulation requires substances to be classified, labelled and packaged according to the regulation from 1 December 2010.

It also requires mixtures, which are currently called "preparations", to be classified, labelled and packaged according to the CLP regulation from 1 June 2015.
