In addition, companies must update the SDSs of substances and mixtures according to the amended Annex II of the REACH Regulation, also from 1 December 2012. This update will include changes in format and content. Changes with respect to classification, labelling and packaging of mixtures in accordance with CLP are required by 1 December 2015.
