SGS Advises Consumer Product Suppliers in Europe of Proposed Changes to CLP Regulation

SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection and certification company, is advising stakeholders that the European Union (EU) is proposing revisions to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 on Classification, Labeling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures (CLP Regulation).

Important changes included in the proposal are:

28 entries added, including:
– Bisphenol AF (BPAF)
– Dibutyltin maleate
– Dibutyltin oxide

23 entries amended, including:
– Lead powder: particle diameter less than 1 mm
– Lead massive: particle diameter no less than 1 mm
– Resorcinol
– 1,2-benzisothiazol-3(2H)-one (BIT)

The changes will affect 51 substances or substance groups falling under Table 3 of Part 3 of Annex VI to the CLP Regulation.

The World Trade Organization (WTO) shared the proposal on March 2, 2023. If accepted, it will be adopted in Q2 of 2023 and enter into force twenty days after being published in the Official Journal of the EU, which is approximately two months after adoption. It will then become effective after a further 18 months (circa late 2024).
