CLP Revision: BeST submits contribution to CLP consultation

On 15 November 2021, BeST participated in the public consultation on the review of the Classification, Labelling and Packaging Regulation (Regulation EC No 1272/2008, also known as the CLP Regulation) launched by the European Commission in the frame of the Chemicals Strategy for sustainability.

The public consultation featured a set of questions in the frame of a questionnaire and offered the possibility to submit detailed comments in the form of a position paper.

BeST has submitted its views to the above-mentioned public consultation and has taken this opportunity to submit additional comments to Question n. 33 of the questionnaire concerning the potential reclassification of an existing harmonised classification of a substance.

BeST strongly supports the proposal to allow industry to submit a reclassification proposal to ECHA and has provided additional comments addressing:

  • The potential reclassification procedure.

  • The assessment of data.

  • The identification of differing potential health outcomes for different forms of the same basic substance, i.e. different health risks between soluble and insoluble forms.

  • The inclusion of experts from industry and civil society in the new evaluating authority
