CHIP within CLP

CLP has brought across parts of CHIP to cover areas where the EU think that GHS is not suitable for the EU.

The main CHIP parts of CLP are:

  • the list of Harmonised Classifications in Table 3.1 of Annex VI to CLP, which is based on the old Approved Supply List held within CHIP, but with CLP classifications
  • the EUH statements, which are additions to the CLP label, partly based on old CHIP Risk Phrases for hazards not currently covered by GHS

The EU intends to lobby the EU to bring all of the EUH statements into GHS in due course.  This has already happened with EUH059 (formerly R59), which was brought into GHS as Hazardous to the Ozone Layer, H420.
