CLP 2017 Update

Posted Date: 
Tuesday, May 9, 2017

As of June 1, 2017, all chemical products that are on the market must be labelled in accordance with the Classification, Labelling, and Packaging (CLP) Regulation.

The CLP Regulation is now the ONLY legislation that applies in the classification and labelling of both substances and mixtures. Companies now must classify, label and package their hazardous chemicals before placing them on the market. If companies still have products on the shelves, that follow the previous requirements, the products must be taken off the shelves and be re-classified and re-labelled.

The purpose of the CLP is to ensure that there is a high level of protection for both health and the environment, as well as being based on the Globally Harmonized System (GHS).

We help US and International clients prepare their chemical packaging labeling for marketing success in Canada. It has been my pleasure to work with Nexreg for the last 2 years on many domestic and international jobs. They have provided my company, and my clients, with CCCR determination and other product assessments in a timely, professional and forthright manner. Their employees, such as James Dayus, have been proactive, professional and personable. I trust them to talk directly to my clients and they have never let me down on professional document completion or deadlines. They are great to work with and I wholeheartedly endorse their work.
