Norms and classification
- codification with hazard statements (H-Phrases) and precautionary statements (P-Phrases) which replaced the old R-Phrases and S-Phrases;
- introduction of additional information (EUH-Phrases).
THE SAFETY DATA SHEETS (SDS) The application of CLP has not changed the obligations to provide the safety data sheet (SDS), which have remained unchanged; as of June 1, 2015, the SDS must be completed with the references and classifications required by CLP.
IMPACT ON OTHER RELATED REGULATIONS The new provisions introduced by CLP see a fallout on other related regulations that refer to the criteria for classification and labeling, and in particular: Seveso (D. Lgs. 334/199 and s.m.i.), Health and Safety in the Workplace (D. Lgs. 81/2008), Waste (Annexes D and I to Part Four of D. Lgs. 152/2006 and s.m.i.), Contribution for food safety (Circular Ministry of Agriculture Food and Forestry of 6 February 2001, n. 1), Archive Dangerous Preparations (art. 45 CLP and D. Lgs. 65/2003).
