CLPThe 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.
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), the Consortium updated its the self-classification for all registered grades; the classification was incorporated into an update of the REACH registration dossier that was submitted in June 2016. The Consortium also published an FAQ document (updated January 2018), 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 and has responded to the public consultation on the proposed environmental classification.
The classification of the Consortium’s UVCBs will be reviewed using the latest version of the ‘Meclas’ metals classification tool. Meclas uses a tiered approach to classification of complex metal substances; the refined substance identity profiles will be used in the classification review.
