Gabriele Heller highlights the significance of an updated CLP regulation concerning treatment of hazardous mixtures.
On March 22, 2017 CLP (Classification, Labelling and Packaging) regulation was amended by adding a new Annex VIII. This annex requires the notification of hazardous mixtures to the ‘appointed bodies’ nominated by the member states responsible to receive information on these kind of mixtures, enabling them to make an emergency health response. The annex also specifies the information such notifications must contain, thus unifying the content of the notifications for all member states.
