Brexit impact

As of exit day (31 January 2020) the UK is no longer an EU Member State. However, in accordance with the Withdrawal Agreement, the UK has entered an implementation period, during which it continues to be subject to EU law. This has an impact on this content. For further guidance, see: Brexit—impact on environmental law and Brexit Bulletin—key updates, research tips and resources.

Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 on Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures (CLP Regulation)

Regulation 1272/2008/EC on Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures (CLP Regulation) has fully replaced the previous classification, labelling and packaging system under the Dangerous Substances Directive (DSD) and the Dangerous Preparations Directive (DPD). In the UK, both the DSD and the DPD were implemented by the Chemicals (Hazard Information and Packaging for Supply) Regulations 2009 (CHIP), which with the exception of some transitional provisions has from 1 June 2015 been revoked.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. Requirements under the CLP Regulation were phased in from 2010 until 2015.

Notification applies to all hazardous substances, irrespective of tonnage, and to all non-hazardous substances subject to registration under the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction
