Labelling hazardous chemicals in compliance with CLP

Posted By: Trace One

Labelling hazardous chemicals in compliance with CLPLabelling is a process aimed at communicating hazard to downstream users and consumers. It is a relevant activity for distributors, manufacturers and importers. In EU, this happens in accordance with the CLP regulation.


The regulation specifies the need of applying a label to a chemical product when:

  • the substance or mixture is classified as hazardous;
  • the mixture contains one or more hazardous substances above a certain threshold;
  • the good has explosive properties.

The CLP regulation further details the content and elements of the label, such as:

  • name, address and phone contact of the supplier;
  • amount of product within the packaging available to the public, when not specified elsewhere;
  • product identifiers;
  • when needed: hazard pictograms, H and P statements, UFI code and further info from specific regulations and so on.
