GHS - Global Harmonised System
The Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council (also called CLP Regulation) regulates the classification, labelling and packaging of chemical substances and mixtures in accordance to the Global Harmonised System (GHS). The European Regulation entered into force on 20 January 2009 and the principal aim is to identify hazardous properties and to harmonize international trade to increase the level of protection for the handling of chemicals.
Since December 2010 manufacturer, importer or downstream users are committed to self-classify their chemical substances according to GHS. The deadline of the self-classification of mixtures will be June 2015.
LAUS supports you in the identification of the hazard classification of your chemical substance or mixture according the CLP Regulation. These includes studies for testing:
- Physical Hazards (e.g. explosive properties)
- Health Hazards (e.g. acute oral toxicity)
- Environmental Hazards (e.g. aquatic toxicity)
We are looking forward to arrange an appointment with you to develop an individual customized test strategy for your substance.
