Chemical Industry

A new regulation came into force in January 2009 stating that manufacturers and importers had already pre-registered more than 140,000 substances with the European Chemicals Agency under the REACH Regulation.

They had until 1 December 2010 to propose "provisional classifications" for these substances, which will be used for the labelling of pure substances from that date. The deadline for classifying mixtures is 31 May.

Chemical label regulations and can offer help and guidance with the following topics:

European and Global Harmonised Standard (GHS) states that the orange and black symbols must be replaced by the red diamond with a black symbol by 1st June 2015.

Multi-Language risk and safety identities.

Drum Labelling Standard (BS5609). This is the printing of chemical labels that comply with the 90-day sea immersion test for labelling of hazardous materials.

Chemical Labelling Regulations (CLP.) The European Union’s Classification, Labelling and Packaging Regulations (EC) 1272/2008 was enacted to protect workers, consumers and the environment from hazardous chemicals. The CLP Regulation incorporates the GHS of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals criteria and also compliments the EU REACH Regulation.

With hazardous chemical labels, it is important to select the right material for hazardous chemicals and other dangerous products and comply with the legal requirements.
