Introduction to Classification, Labelling and Packaging
PLEASE NOTE THE NEW DATE DUE TO DEMAND - WEDNESDAY 21ST JULY 2010.
Do you manufacture or import chemical substances or mixtures? Do you know about the new rules introduced by the CLP (classification, labelling and packaging) Regulation? Major new requirements for classification and labelling and safety data sheets apply from 1st December 2010 - are you ready?
All users of chemicals will be affected by the new rules for the classification and labelling of chemicals. Most affected in the short term will be those companies that place on the market chemical substances as they will need to be (re)classified, (re)labelled, and new safety data sheets (SDS) prepared by 1st December 2010. In addition, manufacturers and importers of substances (on their own and in mixtures) that are placed on the market will need to notify ECHA (the European Chemicals Agency) of the classification and labelling (following the new rules in CLP) of those substances from 1st December 2010. Downstream users will also be affected in the months and years to come.
This course will introduce you to the new Classification, Labelling and Packaging (CLP) which sets out the new requirements for the classification, labelling and packaging of chemical substances and mixtures.
The regulation requires companies to appropriately classify, label and package their substances and mixtures before placing them on the market. It implements the United Nation's Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) in the EU.
The course will be presented by Andrew Fasey (above), who was a member of the drafting group which prepared the GHS and was responsible for preparing the ground for the implementation of the GHS within the EU. For further details and to book onto the event please click here.
