The 12th adaptation to technical progress (ATP) of the CLP Regulation was published on 28 March 2019.
This amends Annexes I to VI to take account of the sixth and seventh revised editions of the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of classification and labelling of chemicals. In particular, these revisions of the GHS introduce a new hazard class for desensitised explosives and a new hazard category, pyrophoric gases, within the hazard class flammable gases.
Other changes include adaptations to the criteria for substances and mixtures which in contact with water emit flammable gases, the generic cut-off values; the general provisions to classify aerosol forms of mixtures; and the detail of the definitions and classification criteria as appropriate for the hazard classes explosives, flammable gases, flammable liquids, flammable solids, acute toxicity, skin corrosion/irritation, serious eye damage/eye irritation, respiratory and skin sensitisation, germ cell mutagenicity, carcinogenicity, reproductive toxicity, specific target organ toxicity and aspiration hazard.
In addition, amendments are introduced to some hazard and precautionary statements.
This Regulation shall apply from 17 October 2020.
