16 February 2012

ECHA has launched the Public Classification and Labelling (C&L) Inventory with the information coming from REACH registrations and CLP notifications so far received by the Agency. Over three million submission records covering more than 90,000 chemical substances are now freely accessible from the ECHA website.The Public C&L Inventory represents the largest database of self-classified substances available globally. A number of options are available for searching the Inventory, based on both the substance identity and its classification. Future updates of the Inventory will continuously improve the search functions in order to enhance access to the information. The Inventory is maintained by the Agency and the data will be refreshed on a regular basis with incoming and updated C&L information (ECHA Press Release, 13 February 2012).
