    FEICA position on the CLP Revision

    The European Commission has adopted a proposal to revise the Classification, Labelling, and Packaging (CLP) Regulation, confirming the ambitions laid out in the proposal’s inception impact assessment by including provisions aiming at better identifying and classifying hazardous chemicals, and improving communication on chemical hazards, including that by online suppliers.

    Revising the CLP means changing the foundation of one of the most comprehensive pieces of hazard communication legislation in the world, and it is important to consider sectorial implications. Please see FEICA's comments on certain points of the revision in this FEICA Position Paper on the CLP Revision.

    FEICA Positions on Polymers Requiring Registration (PRR)

    As part of the ambitions outlined in the Chemical Strategy for Sustainability (CSS), the European Commission is working on a proposal to register polymers under REACH.

    FEICA supports a regulatory framework for the registration of polymers under REACH that places equal weight on the protection of human health and the environment, and the competitiveness and innovation of the European Industry. To achieve this goal, FEICA considers it important that some points are taken into account, which it has outlined in this FEICA Position Paper on PRR.
