Chemical Classification delay

Posted on 1st July, 2015

Last month we informed you that the new Hazardous chemical classification changes were coming into force on the 1st June. After we had sent out the newsletter we learnt that they had been delayed until the 1st July.

To remind you the European Classification, Labelling & Packaging (CLP) Regulations will take effect in the UK bringing us in line with the rest of the world. As part of the Global Harmonisation System (GHS) standardising chemical classifications, these new regulations form part of a United Nations agreement back in 2002.

We are informing our customers of any changes in procedures where applicable. As a company with have reassessed the impact on all the waste streams we handle.
