Germany E.U. Consumer CLP Label Review

Label Type: 
Jurisdiction: 
National Regulations Governing Labels: 

Germany 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 1999/45/EC.

Additional Regulations: 

Germany is fully compliant with EU chemical regulations. Refer to the German Chemical Act provided by the Federal Ministry of Justice for more information. Additional information on labeling and standards can be found on the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) website.

Relevant information on German Consumer protection policy can be found with the Federal Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection. The Ministry also provides the latest news and educational resources on consumer protection topics. Further, links to relevant EU legislation and contact information can be accessed through the Ministry.

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 Labels has passed for pure substances – it was November 30, 2010. The deadline for mixtures is May 31, 2015. Not all the building blocks in the United Nations’ Purple Book were adopted by the EU CLP regulation.
