Version 1.0 February 2019

Guidance to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 on classification, labelling and packaging (CLP) of substances and mixtures

This document is the Guidance on the harmonised information relating to emergency health response. It is a comprehensive technical and scientific document on the implementation of Article 45 and Annex VIII to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 on the classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures. CLP is based on the Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) and is implementing the provisions of the GHS within the EU. CLP now has relevance for European Economic Area (EEA) countries (i.e. it is implemented in the EU countries and in Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein).

The objective of this document is to provide detailed guidance on the obligation to submit to Member States responsible bodies relevant information on hazardous mixtures placed on the market for formulating preventative and curative measures in case of accidents. The guidance is developed to primarily assist companies placing hazardous mixtures on the market in complying with their obligations. It is also intended to be a support tool for the appointed bodies in the Member States.

This guidance document was developed by ECHA with the support of a dedicated Working Group consisting of experts from Industry, Member State appointed bodies and poison centres. The project started in April 2017 and the working group had meetings and continuous discussions to develop the guidance text until December 2017. Finally the text was consolidated and edited by ECHA and underwent the formal consultation with ECHA Partners during 2018 and beginning of 2019.

This Guidance document is structured to present, after a general introduction, the main information. The main elements relevant to all the operators involved are then clarified before going into the details of the specific legal obligations.

The obligations are then described by following the same section structure of Annex VIII.

- Section 1, presents the legal background, scope and target of this document in general terms.
- Section 2 provides a list of definitions and clarifies the main terms used throughout the Guidance.
- Section 3 provides relevant information for the reader to understand whether they have obligations under Annex VIII of CLP. Therefore, section 3 clarifies who is required to submit information and to whom, by when and which mixtures fall under the scope of Annex VIII.
- Section 4, presents the need to identify the mixture using a unique formula identifier, the harmonised European categorisation system (EuPCS) and the possibility to opt for a limited or a group submission. This section further explains the basic elements and options linked to the submission of information, which should be known before the duty holder starts preparing the submission.
- Section 5 describes in detail the information to be submitted to the appointed body, as required in Annex VIII.
- Section 6 presents the available tools and the system put in place to allow industry and authorities to comply with the legal obligations.
- Section 7 explains what happens after the submission. This includes a description of the possible uses of the information submitted to the appointed bodies, the requirement that the submitter must keep the information up to date, and which changes trigger the obligation to update the submission.
- Section 8 lists the main available additional supporting tools.
