Is your Hazard labelling compliant with the law?

From 1 June 2015, the United Nations’ Globally Harmonised System on the classification and labelling of chemicals became legal under the CLP Regulations.

The updated designs originally came into force in 2010, but companies have had until 1 June to implement the changes and replace the old style orange HSID symbols with the new CLP hazard pictograms.

The new regulations will replace the Chemicals (Hazard Information and Packaging for Supply) Regulations 2009.

There are only 9 Pictograms, all with white backgrounds, a red diamond frame and a black hazard symbol – see the diagram below.

Make sure you comply.
