The EU Commission has published Regulation (EU) 2017/776, which was issued on May 4, 2017. Experts speak of the new regulation as an ATP, an adaption to technical and scientific progress. Publication marks the tenth time that the CLP Regulation (Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 – CLP Regulation) has been modified to consider new technical and scientific developments. The new law went into force on May 25 and applies as of December 1, 2018.
The changes implement Acute Toxicity Estimates (ATE) for substances that help to harmonize classification of mixtures. Moreover, in Annex VI the classifications for 37 substances were revised and included.
All substances (as of December 2010) and all mixtures (as of June 2017) within the EU must be classified, labeled, and packaged according to the requirements of the CLP Regulation. See our blog entry, CLP: 10. Changes on the Way, and our article, CLP: Transition Period for Hazardous Mixtures Expires in June.
