ECHA reminds companies to start classifying chemicals under CLP as early as possible. Manufacturers and importers in the EU have to classify substances according to the new CLP criteria from December 1, 2010 onwards. And also must notify these classifications to the Classification and Labelling Inventory in ECHA by January 3, 2011.
