CLP Labelling Regulations


In CLP labelling regulations, CLP stands for classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures. From 1st June 2015 all mixtures will have to abide with the legislation. These will be seen on paint products as well as other chemical containing goods very soon. Therefore, we would like to ensure that you all know the new legislation.

You can find out about chemical hazard symbol meanings here.

CLP regulations apply to substances and mixtures where:

  • The substance or mixture is classified as hazardous;
  • A mixture, even if not classified as hazardous, is addressed in Part 2 of Annex II to CLP.

Those classified as hazardous must bear a label including the following elements:

  • Name, address and telephone number of the supplier(s);
  • The nominal quantity of the substance or mixture in the package where this is being made available to the general public, unless this quantity is specified elsewhere on the package;
  • Product identifiers;
  • Hazard pictograms, where applicable;corrosive
  • The relevant signal word, where applicable;
  • Hazard statements, where applicable;
  • Appropriate precautionary statements where applicable;
  • A section for supplemental information, where applicable.

Therefore, a lot of changes may be necessary before the deadline of June 1st 2015. This is a European regulation which could apply to you. For more information, a full guidance documentation has been created by the European Chemicals Agency.

Positive ID Labelling obviously thrives on providing labels for our customers. All of our labelling systems are supported by our own labelling manufacturing capability, ranging from as few as 5,000 to as many as 5,000,000 labels… and all at competitive prices.

We are able to manufacture your labels both flexographically (high volume) or digitally (low volume). Flexographic labels are made on our Nilpeter 330 UV press, digital labels are made on our EFI Jetrion 4900. The digital press can print full colour labels without the need for plates. Changes can be made between print runs on the computer alone and implemented immediately. There are no plates so no delays in production. The digital equipment includes a laser die cutting station which cuts labels to any shape or size that we draw in the artwork.
