Classification, labelling & Packaging

Classification, labelling & Packaging (CLP)

European Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 on classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures came into force on 20 January 2009.

It is known by its abbreviated form, ‘the CLP Regulation’ or just plain ‘CLP’. CLP encompasses the regulatory requirement for classification, labelling and packaging of mixtures, where a mixture has hazardous properties (as defined in the CLP regulation) or where it contains certain hazardous components above specified concentrations.

CLP Documents

CLP information is provided free of charge for all our oils. However, please note that the CLP information is provided as a courtesy and is based on current knowledge of the regulations, which may be subject to change. The information provided, only represents the contribution of the fragrance oil components and does not take into consideration any additional ingredients that may be contained within a final product.

Buyer Responsibility

Ultimately, the responsibility for the correct classification and labelling of the final product lies with the person(s) placing it on the market.
It is recommended that the final CLP is determined using the information contained within the SDS provided for the neat fragrance oil, in conjunction with that of the other ingredients within the final product. It is their responsibility to create a CLP for their own product, as once again the fragrance will be at a lower level in which ever base they are using, of which could contain other hazards and therefore would affect hazards and statements required on a new document. Any Customer product, marketing or other claims are the Customer’s ultimate responsibility.

Hazards

Corresponding documents for each of our fragrance oils can be found on the individual products pages in the Technical Documents tab. It is recommended that you download the required documents to your own device, as documents can sometimes get distorted when being viewed online.

Most fragrance oils have hazards associated with their use, some of these hazards can cause serious harm if the appropriate safety precautions are not taken when using these oils.

PLEASE FAMILIARISE YOURSELF WITH THE HAZARDS DETAILED ON THE SAFETY DATA SHEET
