The 2009 CHIP Regulations are changing – are you up to date with your safety labelling?
Wednesday 6th July, 2016
CHIP is the abbreviated name for Chemicals (Hazard Information and Packaging for Supply) Regulations. CHIP Regulations are being replaced by the European CLP Regulations.
GHS - The Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals addresses classification of chemicals by types of hazards and proposes harmonised hazard communication elements, including labels and safety data sheets. The GHS also provides a basis for harmonisation of rules and regulations on chemicals at national, regional and worldwide level, an important factor also for trade facilitation.
The new regulations require companies to reassess their classification and labelling systems - find out what you need to do to keep up to date by opening up the pdf below.
