EU Classification, Labeling, and Packaging Legislation — A Conversation with Karin Baron
This week, I sat down with my colleague Karin Baron, a senior regulatory consultant here at B&C.
In this conversation, Karin talks about recent European Union enforcement initiatives that have to do with the CLP legislation: Classification, Labeling, and Packaging legislation. Karin begins by telling us about the current state of harmonization along the lines of the GHS model, and how this might be more an aspiration than a reality. Then we talk about the history of the CLP legislation: how it was introduced, how it has changed over the years, and what recent changes are doing to bring it more in line with the GHS.
We also go into a number of different themes that might be of interest to you, including why “mixture classifications” can be so varied across different regions and Karin gives some concrete recommendations and tips for manufacturers, distributors, and exporters that deal with the EU.
