SGS Summarizes EU Plans to Revise CLP Regulation on Substances and Mixtures

SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection and certification company, has published SafeGuardS 014.24 to provide stakeholders with an overview of EU plans to amend Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 on Classification, Labeling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures (CLP Regulation).

Announced by the World Trade Organization (WTO) on January 18, 2024, the draft regulation and its annex contain several important changes, including:
– Introducing 27 new entries, including perboric acid and sodium peroxometaborate
– Replacing 16 existing entries, including trimethyl borate, sulfur and formaldehyde
– Deleting one entry for a specified type of granulated copper

It is expected the draft regulation will be adopted in Q2 of 2024, published in the Official Journal of the EU (OJEU) around two months later, and will come into force a further 20 days later. It will then become applicable 18 months after the date of entry into force (circa late 2025).
