The CLP Regulation is an essential tool to identify, communicate and trigger the regulation of hazardous chemicals in Europe. However, CLP needs to be improved to support the implementation and the level of ambition of the Chemicals Strategy of Sustainability (CSS). Hence, we strongly support the strengthening of this piece of law in order to make it more efficient, trigger more protection, be less burdensome for the authorities and place the burden on the companies making economic profit from the manufacture of hazardous chemicals.

The CLP revision must be focused on:

  1. Improving the protection of people and the environment against hazardous chemicals and reducing human and environmental exposure
  2. Accelerate the classification process
  3. Making classification, labelling and packaging less burdensome for the competent authorities

The EEB supports all the Inception Impact Assessment (IIA) options to revise CLP as well as the proposals included in the Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability.
