About CLP Building Blocks
Most chemical classification systems have very similar elements, and CLP contains similar elements to CHIP, its precursor.
- Specific rules for product identification, see https://ttenvironmenta.wpengine.com/clp-knowledgebase/product-identifiers/
- Classification categories for different hazard types – CLP-GHS classifications, see https://ttenvironmenta.wpengine.com/clp-knowledgebase/clp-ghs-classifications/
- Symbol showing hazards – Pictograms in CLP/GHS, see https://ttenvironmenta.wpengine.com/clp-knowledgebase/clp-pictograms-symbols/
- Written summary of hazards – Signal Word in CLP/GHS, see https://ttenvironmenta.wpengine.com/clp-knowledgebase/the-signal-word/
- Detailed written description of hazards – Hazard Statements in CLP/GHS, see https://ttenvironmenta.wpengine.com/clp-knowledgebase/h-statements/
- Detailed written description of how to handle product – Precautionary Statements in CLP/GHS, see https://ttenvironmenta.wpengine.com/clp-knowledgebase/p-statements/ .
- Extra labelling information not included in GHS – EUH Statements, CLP only, see https://ttenvironmenta.wpengine.com/clp-knowledgebase/euh-statements/
- List of “official” classifications for chemicals which don’t conform to normal classification rules – Harmonised Classifications under CLP (allowed, but not part of, GHS), see https://ttenvironmenta.wpengine.com/clp-knowledgebase/harmonised-classifications-under-clp/
- Special classification thresholds for “official” classified chemicals – Specific Concentration Limits under CLP (allowed, but not part of, GHS), see https://ttenvironmenta.wpengine.com/clp-knowledgebase/specific-concentration-limits/
- Special classification thresholds for substances with high aquatic toxicity – M-factors under CLP-GHS, see https://ttenvironmenta.wpengine.com/clp-knowledgebase/m-factors/
Unlike most other chemical classification systems, CLP also includes a duty to notify the CLP classifications and approximate annual quantities of import or manufacture (for each substance brought or made in the EU) to the European Chemicals Agency, see https://ttenvironmenta.wpengine.com/clp-knowledgebase/cl-notification/ .
