Consultation on Draft Regulation Introducing NEW CLP Hazard Classes

On September 20th, 2022, the European Commission published a Draft Commission Delegated Regulation amending Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP) for the purpose of inserting new hazard classes and their criteria.

The need to insert new hazard classes and their criteria into the CLP Regulation for its adaptation to technical and scientific progress has been recognised by its inclusion as one of the primary commitments under the chemicals strategy for sustainability, which is a building block of the European Green Deal, for the protection of consumers, vulnerable groups and workers from the most harmful chemicals and for the target of zero chemical pollution in the environment.

The draft amendment identifies a need to introduce the following hazard classes:

  • Presumed (Cat 1.) and Suspected (Cat.2) Endocrine Disruptors (ED);

  • Persistent, Bioaccumulative and Toxic (PBT);

  • very Persistent and very Bioaccumulative (vPvB);

  • Persistent, Mobile and Toxic (PMT);

  • very Persistent and very Mobile (vPvM).

There are only two more days left before the public consultation closing date, which is set on October 18, 2022. You still have time to have your say. Link available HERE.
