Do you make chemicals (manufacturer)?
A manufacturer is a person based in the European Union (EU) (or the European Economic Area (EEA)) that makes (produces) or extracts a substance.
If you are a manufacturer, you must classify, label and package substances and mixtures according to CLP before placing them on the market.
In addition, you need to notify the CLP classifications of your substances to the Classification and Labelling Inventory established at the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA).
This means you should:
- make sure you understand what your duties are under the new CLP Regulation.
- make sure you understand the transitional periods to ensure that you re-classify, label and package on time;
- co-operate with others in your supply chain, to make sure the changes are managed smoothly;
- check that your chemicals are correctly classified and that your product labels are accurate.
All those in the supply chain are responsible for ensuring that substances and mixtures are labelled and packaged correctly before being placed on the market.
