BYK Additives & Instruments

Globally harmonized system - CLP

Change of labels and safety data sheets.

GHS is an initiative for standardizing and improving the hazard communication worldwide.
The Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 (CLP regulation, Classification, Labelling and Packaging) is the implementation of GHS in the EU legislation

The CLP regulation must be applied by 1st December 2010 for substances and until 1st June 2015 for mixtures.
BYK will classify and label all products in accordance with the CLP regulation by 1st December 2010. Therefore, the new GHS label will be displayed on product containers and we will issue new safety data sheets containing both the old and the new classification as of 1st December 2010.

Please note that according to the CLP regulation the classification of our products may change. However, the intrinsic hazard profile of the products remains unchanged.
