The European Commission has published a Delegated Regulation (EU) 2023/707, which defines three new hazard classes and criteria for the classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures. This regulation enters into force on 20 April 2023 (for more details, see our previous article).
Further information on transitional periods and dates when the regulation starts to apply to different substances and mixtures is available on the ECHA website.
For substances already on the market:
For new substances on the market, companies need to comply with the new rules from 1 May 2025.
For mixtures already on the market:
For new mixtures on the market, companies need to comply with the new rules from 1 May 2026.
The guidance on the application of CLP criteria is currently being updated with publication expected during 2024. In the meantime, companies and Member State authorities can use current guidance on identifying endocrine disruptors and on PBT (persistence, bioaccumulation, toxicity) assessment.
Furthermore, the new hazard classes will be included into IUCLID during spring 2024. From then on, companies will be able to include information related to the new hazard classes in their classification and labelling notifications, REACH registrations and dossiers for product and process oriented research and development (PPORD), as well as in their submissions under the Biocidal Products Regulation and poison centre notifications.
