EIGA Document 169/17 - Classification, and Labelling Guide in accordance with EC Regulation 1272/2008 (CLP Regulation)
EIGA Doc 169 known as the "Classification and Labelling Guide" is updated annually in order to take into account the changes in the CLP Regulation and the changes in the classification of gases due to the REACH registration of substances that have occurred during the preceding 12 months.
Because the transitional period to implement the CLP ended in July 2017, all references to the former legislation on classification and labelling (the DSD and DPD) have been removed from the 2017 edition of this document. Also the list of gases whose classification data are not maintained anymore has been extended (see section 4.1) because these gases are not marketed anymore by EIGA members or they may not be placed on the market anymore mainly because of their ozone depleting potential.
All the amendments to the 2016 edition are listed after the table of content and are either underlined in the text or highlighted in the tables of data.
