What is CLP?
As from the 1st June 2015 all new products sold by the TheChemicalHut will be labelled using the new Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS).
This change is being implemented in the European Union via the Classification, Labelling and Packaging regulation (CLP), previously all chemical products were labelled and regulated under CHIP.
What has changed under CLP?
In many ways nothing has changed from a product perspective, but rather, a new system of thresholds and calculations mean that manufacturer’s have to adjust the way certain products are labelled.
Products that contain ingredients or a cocktail (multiple ingredients) which exceed the new threshold of 3% (previously 10%) will now be labelled differently to highlight the potential for risk if exposed to the eyes or skin in it’s raw form.
