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.
