As of June 2015 all hazardous chemicals (substances and mixtures) placed on the market must be classified, labelled and packaged according to the CLP (Classification, Labelling and Packaging) Regulation.

CLP Labels have been developed to label dangerous chemicals and chemical mixtures to warn employees, handlers and customers with a system of pictograms and safety messages.
Almost all chemicals in the EU need to adhere to the CLP identification language to ensure the risks of exposure are equally understandable throughout Europe as these chemicals are part of our daily life.

CLP compliant labelling rules are also set out to determine the colours, size of labels, formats, legibility and location of label elements.
