EU – New Hazard Classes Under the CLP Regulation

Tiempo estimado de lectura: 33 segundos

​The Delegated Regulation for the classification, labeling and packaging of chemicals (CLP) came into force on April 20. It introduces new hazard classes for endocrine disruptors, as well as for chemicals that are not biodegradable and can accumulate in living organisms, or risk entering and spreading through the water cycle, including drinking water. New hazard classes for endocrine disruptors and persistent substances are one of the key commitments under the Chemicals for Sustainable Development Strategy and will ensure that these harmful substances are detected in time. They are the result of in-depth scientific discussions and will provide up-to-date information on these chemicals to all users of these products, including consumers, workers and businesses, in their purchasing or use decisions throughout the internal market. They allow additional measures to be taken to address and mitigate the risks of substances and mixtures under other EU legislation, while taking into account socio-economic impacts. The Commission adopted this delegated act on December 19, 2022, it then went through the European Parliament and the Council and was published in the Official Journal on March 31, 2023.​
