CLP

The Consortium periodically reviews the classification of its substances in line with the latest scientific data and knowledge. For many of the Pb REACH Consortium substances, industry has proposed self-classification that goes beyond the EU harmonised classification as set out in Annex VI to the CLP Regulation.

Current activity

The Consortium is actively involved in key technical and advocacy work related to the CLP Regulation.

It periodically reviews the classification of its substances in line with the latest scientific data and knowledge. For many of the Pb REACH Consortium substances industry has proposed self-classification that goes beyond the EU harmonised classification as set out in Annex VI to the CLP Regulation.

In consideration of the harmonised classification for lead metal agreed for the 9th ATP to CLP (Regulation (EU) 2016/1179), published on 19 July 2016, the Consortium has updated its the self-classification for all grades registered. The new classification was incorporated into an update of the REACH registration dossier that was submitted in June 2016. The Consortium has also published an FAQ document written to address common questions about the harmonised health classification introduced by the 9th ATP to CLP.

In light of a long-anticipated proposal from Denmark for harmonised environmental classification, the Consortium has further developed its advocacy workplan for the defence of lead metal.

The classification of the Consortium’s UVCBs is currently under review using the latest version of the ‘Meclas’ metals classification tool. Meclas uses a tiered approach to classification of complex metal substances.
