Chemical Classification

All hazardous chemicals (substances and mixtures) placed on the market must be classified, labelled and packaged according to the CLP Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 since 1st June 2015.

It is not enough to have a safety data sheet, you must have the relevant safety data sheet compliant for your geographical region.

A compliant SDS should have the following in the EU and America.

  • Sixteen sections
  • Classified and labelled under GHS/CLP
  • In the language of the market where the product is being positioned
