Notification to the Classification and Labelling Inventory – a new duty for manufacturers and importers
The UK has left the EU, new rules from January 2021
The transition period after Brexit comes to an end this year.
The CLP Regulation introduces the Classification and Labelling Inventory. The Inventory provides information about all the substances placed on the market.
CLP introduces a new duty on any manufacturer or importer (or group thereof) to notify details of the substances they place on the market to the Inventory.
If you are a manufacturer or an importer (or group thereof) you must notify:
- substances subject to REACH registration and placed on the market
- hazardous substances placed on the market on their own
- hazardous substances placed on the market in a mixture, resulting in that mixture being classified as hazardous.
Notification can be made through a number of different IT systems. ECHA has responsibility for notification and the supporting IT systems.
