Draft of fourth ATP to CLP Regulation sent to WTO

The draft text of the European Commission’s fourth Adaptation to Technical Progress (ATP) to the EU Regulation on the classification, labelling and packaging (CLP) of chemicals has been submitted to the WTO’s Committee on Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) and published on the WTO website. The fourth ATP will bring the 2008 CLP Regulation into line with the fourth revised edition of the UN Globally Harmonised System (GHS) of chemicals classification and labelling, which was published last year. The changes are proposed to enter into force in the first quarter of 2013. Further information is available at: Draft document
