3-day course

Develop your knowledge of classification, labelling and packaging to ensure compliance for chemical substances and mixtures

Course Overview

The Classification, Labelling and Packaging (CLP) Regulation was introduced to ensure a high level of protection for health and the environment. Based on the Globally Harmonised System (GHS) the CLP Regulation is also designed to facilitate global trade and harmonised communication of hazardous chemical information.
