The 18th ATP of CLP

On March 3rd 2022, the European Commission published on the Official Journal of the European Union the regulation (UE) n. 2022/692, also known as the 18th ATP amending Reg. 1272/2008 (the European implementation of the GHS standard).

The 18th ATP updates Annex VI to CLP by adding 39 harmonised substances, deleting one and changing the classification of 17 substances already incuded in the Annex.

Among other changes, we remark the:

  • Introduction of the harmonized classification for Melamine (CAS 108-78-1, EC 203-615-4) as Carc. 2, H351 and STOT RE 2, H373 (urinary tract)
  • Addition of the classification as Aquatic Acute 1, H400 and Aquatic Chronic 1, H410 (M=10) to the preexisting harmonized classification for Bisphenol A (CAS 80-05-7, EC 201-245-8)
  • Modification of multiplicative factors for environmental hazard classifications for various substances
  • Introduction of the harmonized classification for Bisphenol S (CAS 80-09-1, EC 201-250-5) as Repr. 1B, H360FD
