Classification and Labelling

CLP has replaced the Dangerous Substances Directive (DSD) and the Dangerous Preparations Directive (DPD): Since 2010, substances have needed to be classified, labelled and packaged according to Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 (CLP). From 1 June 2015, mixtures have also had to be classified, labelled and packaged in accordance with CLP. Mixtures already classified, labelled and packaged according to DPD and placed on the market before 1 June 2015 did not have to be to be re-labelled and re-packaged until 1 June 2017.
