As of exit day (31 January 2020) the UK is no longer an EU Member State.

Regulation (EC) no 1272/2008/EC on Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures (CLP Regulation) adopts the United Nations’ Globally Harmonised System on the classification and labelling of chemicals (UN GHS) across all European Union countries, including the UK and from 1 June 2015 fully replaces the previous classification system under the Dangerous Substances Directive 67/548/EEC and the Dangerous Preparations Directive 1999/45/EC.
Both the Dangerous Substances Directive (DSD) and the Dangerous Preparations Directive (DPD) were implemented into the UK by the Chemicals (Hazard Information and Packaging for Supply) Regulations 2009, SI 2009/716 (CHIP), which, with the exception of some transitional provisions, has from 1 June 2015 been revoked.
The CLP Regulation entered into force on 20 January 2009 in the European Union and it is directly applicable to suppliers who manufacture, import, use or distribute chemical substances and mixtures.
