National Regulations Governing Labels:
Slovenia 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.
Slovenia is fully compliant with EU chemical regulations. For more information on environment and chemical policy please refer to the Slovenian Chemicals office. For Specific legislation regarding the regulation of chemicals please refer to the Slovenian Chemicals Act. Additional information on labeling and standards can be found on the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) website.
The regulations for consumer and industrial labels in Slovenia are the same, but the concerns of industry and consumers may differ. Consumer protection falls under the authority of the Ministry of Economic Development and Technology – Market Inspectorate. With the Market Inspectorate you will be able to find relevant legislation and guidelines on consumer protection and product safety.
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.
