    Downstream Users – 8  priorities for the CLP revision 

    The EU Classification, Labelling and Packaging Regulation (CLP) is a cornerstone of the EU chemical legislation. Revising CLP means changing the foundation of one of the most comprehensive pieces of legislation in the world.  As a horizontal piece of legislation, CLP has a wide-ranging impact, with any change to likely have a knock-on effect on various sectors, including, but not limited to biocides, pesticides, detergents, cosmetics, toys, and medical devices. Thus, DUCC strongly urges the European Commission to include evaluation of sectorial implications in CLP impact assessment.

    This paper illustrates 8 priorities regarding the CLP revision, as outlined by DUCC and its members.

  • A Tailored Risk Assessment for Food Contact Materials.pdf

    Uploaded April 11, 2022

    FEICA co-signs 'Tailored Risk Assessment for Food Contact Materials' (FCM)

    Numerous associations propose an approach where substances undergo a “one substance - one assessment”, consisting of a first step “one substance- one hazard assessment” in which the hazard is defined by the intrinsic properties of the substance. This should be followed by a second step of a “FCM specific risk assessment and management” for food contact materials and articles, in which the risk resulting from potential oral exposure is assessed. We believe that EFSA is best positioned to provide such specific FCM assessment due to their extensive experience in food safety-related matters, and in the assessment of substances in dietary exposure.
