Retiring EC labelling: CLP labels becomes mandatory

exception-labelling-sds.jpgLabelling according to the old 1999/45/CE directive was still accepted thanks to a transitional period which allowed its use for mixtures manufactured and placed on the market before June 1st 2015, according to article 61, paragraph 4 of regulation (EC) 1272/2004 (also known as CLP).

This transitional period lasted until June 1st 2017, bringing an end to this type of labelling and making CLP-compliant labelling mandatory for all mixtures, even if placed on the market before June 1st 2015.

Reg. 2015/830 becomes mandatory

SDS created in accordance with Reg. 453/2010 were still accepted thanks to a transitional period which allowed its use for mixtures manufactured and placed on the market before June 1st 2015, according to article 2, paragraph 6 of regulation (EU) 453/2010.

This transitional period came to an end on June 1st 2017, meaning that this type of Safety Data Sheet will not be accepted anymore. After June 1st 2017 only SDSs created according to Reg. (EU) 2015/830 will be considered compliant, for both substances and mixtures.

We remind you that our software has been generating SDSs compliant to Reg. 2015/830 since June of 2015.
