CLP Changes — A Conversation with Lee Bowers and Karin F. Baron
This week I had the pleasure of speaking with Lee Bowers, Vice President — Environmental, Health & Safety (EHS), RPM International, Inc., and Bergeson & Campbell’s own Karin Baron, Director of Hazard Communication and International Registration Strategy, to discuss the consequential changes to the classification, labeling, and packaging of substances and mixtures (CLP) system in the European Union (EU). As some of our listeners may know, in April 2023, the European Commission entered into force significant changes to the CLP regulation. The real-world impacts of these changes are now being felt in a host of commercial transactions. These challenges arise because of the lack of alignment between CLP and the Globally Harmonized System of Classification of Labeling of Chemicals (GHS), which may sound less urgent than it is. Karin and I have been beating this drum for a while now, and Lee Bowers and Karin Baron are here to discuss actual instances and real case studies that listeners may find helpful to know.
