The rules on small packages only affect the label type and size, and sometimes the label information required. The same rules on SDSs apply, regardless of the size of the package.
Where a label is so small that information can be omitted, this does not apply to outer packages containing multiple small packages, where a normal size label can be used, and full labelling information is required. This means that you may need to have two labels for small packages, one for the small package itself, and another for any outer packages.
There are four types of small package under CLP:
- all packages between 125 ml and 3 litres
- consumer packages between 10 ml and 125 ml
- industrial and professional use packages between 10 ml and 125 ml
- industrial and professional use packages for QC and R&D purposes less than 10 ml

Small packages are unlikely to be approved for Transport, and instead must meet the CLP packaging rules, which can be found at https://ttenvironmenta.wpengine.com/clp-knowledgebase/non-transport-approved-packaging-for-clp-products/ .
