EFCC joins cross-sector call for a rethink regarding CLP revision

EFCC together with several industry federations calls for urgent dialogue and a rethink regarding CLP Revision. We focus on three key aspects that will have a major negative impact on industry and the environment:

  • the new 6-month timeline for label updates instead of the 18 months transition period provided in Adaptation to Technical Progress (ATP) to CLP for harmonised classifications to become mandatory
  • the tabled amendment within the European Parliament to prohibit environmental claims on mixtures classified as hazardous or carrying supplemental labelling
  • the proposed requirement of a minimum font size - we suggest to follow ECHA’s guidance of 1.2mm x-height as the minimum font size.
