Austria E.U. Industrial CLP Label Review

Label Type: 
Jurisdiction: 
National Regulations Governing Labels: 

Austria is a member of the European Union and as such is bound by EU regulations. For pure substances, Austrian labels must be compliant with the EU’s GHS based CLP-regulation No. 1272/2008 – labels created to be compliant with Directive 67/548/EEC have expired. For mixtures, labels can be compliant with either 1272/2008 or with the previous Directive

Additional Regulations: 

Austria is fully compliant with EU chemical regulations, for more information see Austrian Chemicals Act 1996 (Chemikaliengesetz (ChemG 1996), BGBl. I Nr. 53/1997). Also, please visit the Austrian site on Dangerous Substances. Additional information on labeling and standards can be found on the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) website.

GHS Implementation Status: 

The EU has fully adopted GHS under their CLP Regulation (Regulation on classification, labeling and packaging of substances and mixtures). The deadline for having new SDSs has passed for pure substances – it was November 30, 2010. The deadline for mixtures was May 31, 2015. Not all the building blocks in the United Nations’ Purple Book were adopted by the EU CLP regulation.

Testimonial

We're often asked by our clients to meet next-to-impossible deadlines, which means that we're often forced to ask our vendors for the impossible. Working with Nexreg makes my job easier. They are experts at what they do, they pay attention to detail, and they make suggestions and offer advice – which makes us look like the experts. For regulatory compliance and translations, Nexreg ranks as one of the strategic partners we can always count on.
