CLP mixtures deadline – feedback from the detergent industry

26 November 2015

Mixtures being placed on the EU market had to be reviewed by 1 June 2015 according to the Classification, Labelling and Packaging (CLP) Regulation. This meant more safety information for the users of the products but new challenges for mixture manufacturers. ECHA interviewed Dr Sylvie Lemoine from the International Association for Soaps, Detergents and Maintenance Products to find out about how industry managed.
She said that some of the new CLP requirements that were considered ‘relatively minor', turned out to have a major impact. To manage the upcoming changes in classification and labelling, companies should maintain very clear processes and tools (ECHA Newsletter, 12 November 2015).
