B8.3.2 Global Harmonised System for Classification, Labelling and Packaging (GHS CLP)



The GHS CLP came into effect for materials produced from the 1st June 2015 onwards.

The aim of GHS is to harmonise the various existing classification systems for chemicals and chemical based products across the world.

Labelled stock manufactured before the new regulations take effect could be supplied for 2 years up to 1st June 2017. Therefore that during that transitional period stock may be supplied with either the current CHIP or new CLP regulation information.
