Meeting the CLP Deadline of June 1, 2015

CONUSBAT performs all services towards compliance with the re-classification deadline of June 1, 2015 and possesses 'Proof of Expertise' according to §5 (ChemProhReg/Chem VerbotsV).

The European Union’s adaptation of the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) is Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 (CLP) on classification, labeling and packaging of substances and mixtures which entered into force on January 20, 2009. Since December 1, 2010, CLP applied to all substances and a new deadline comes up on June 1, 2015. This is the day when the classification rules from CLP will become fully applicable for chemical mixtures. Also effective on June 1, 2015, the old Directives 67/548/EEC and 1999/45/EC will be repealed. All suppliers of cosmetic ingredients will have to comply with the CLP classification rules for their products.

After the ‘ICIS Surfactants Conference’ in Berlin

CONUSBAT on 'Surfactants in Cosmetic Products'

While key areas for surfactant application are detergents & household cleaners, most cosmetics contain surfactants as well, using their various functions. However, for cosmetics as well the biggest surfactant consumption applies to the cleaning function used mainly in personal care products.

Surfactants, as all ingredients for cosmetic products, have to comply with REACH & CLP. Therefore, we wish to remind about the upcoming deadlines for re-classification of mixtures under CLP (2015) and for the final registration under REACH (2018).
