With Regulation 2021/643, the EU has modified Annex VI, Part 1, of Regulation 1272/2008 on the Classification, Labeling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures (CLP Regulation). The change has been in effect since May 10. The change represents the EU’s response to the desire of member states and stakeholders who had asked for clearer formulation of the cases in which harmonized classification of carcinogens and mutagens applies.
According to the law, classification and labeling is required for chemical substances with carcinogenic, mutagenic, reprotoxic, and/or respiratory-sensitizing properties. Annex VI, Part 3 of the CLP Regulation lists the chemicals.
Part 1 of Annex VI introduces general descriptions and terminology definitions into the list. Part II defines the basics for preparation of dossiers with which harmonized classification and labeling is suggested and justified.
