What Is CLP And How It Affects Tikkurila Business?
The CLP regulation (Classification, Labeling and Packaging) concerns the classification, labelling and packaging of chemicals. The purpose of the regulation is to ensure a high level of protection for human health and the environment. The regulation harmonizes the classification criteria of substances and compounds and the rules governing labelling and packaging.
The CLP regulation is effective in all EU countries and along with it, the Globally Harmonized System of classification and labelling of chemicals (GHS) will be implemented globally. Tikkurila has been preparing for the new labelling and safety data sheet requirements of the CLP regulation since 2013. The warning texts on the labels of Tikkurila's paint products manufactured and sold in the EU region have been replaced by June 2015.
