Summary of chemicals with non-CLP designations

Some non-CLP designations can affect the CLP label, and/or the Safety Data Sheet (SDS).  These designations include:

  • Chemicals on the SVHC Candidate List
  • Authorised substances
  • Restricted substances
  • Chemicals with Workplace Exposure Substance Limits
  • PBT and vPvB substances

Ozone depleting substances are important to CLP as they give rise to the classification Hazardous to the Ozone Layer, Category 1, H420, Harms public health and the environment by destroying ozone in the upper atmosphere.

Prior Informed Consent substances are briefly discussed, as this is a requirement to notify ECHA when specific substances are imported and exported from the EU.

Nano materials have been included for reference, as extra information is required under REACH, and some EU member countries regulate these.

Chemicals on the IARC carcinogen list have also been included, and their relationship with the CLP definition of carcinogens is briefly discussed, as not every substance on the IARC carcinogen list is carcinogenic, and not everything which IARC considers to be carcinogenic is considered by the EU to be carcinogenic.
