chcs hibiscus webinar clp labelling

Hibiscus Plc will be hosting a CHCS webinar, on the 20th April 2023,  giving an overview of the key labelling changes proposed under CLP – Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Chemicals Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008, and the challenges these pose for the chemical industry.

This webinar will provide an overview of the proposed key changes including: 

  • Obligatory formatting rules for labels 
  • Implications for the wider use of booklet labels  
  • Voluntary partial digital labelling 
  • Challenges faced by chemical companies under the new proposal 


On 19th December 2022, the European Commission proposed a revision to the Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Chemicals (CLP) regulations and introduced five new hazard classes for endocrine disruptors and other harmful substances.  However, it is the proposed changes to label formatting under the proposal that could have far wider implications for much of the chemical industry. 

These proposed amendments, aimed at improving the communication of chemical hazards, include significant changes such as minimal font sizes and changes to the layout of labels.  

The introduction of these new labelling requirements would mean that chemical manufacturers and distributors would need to update the labels on their packaging when selling chemicals on the EU market and the implementation of these proposed measures could have a major impact on label production in the chemical industry.  

During this webinar we will take a closer look at the key details of the proposed CLP label changes and offer insights into the potential risks of a broader use of booklet labels and digital labelling and the challenges these could pose for companies facing the prospect of increased labelling obligations. 

Who should attend? 

This webinar will be of interest to a wide audience – especially those involved in, or responsible for, the EU regulatory compliance of chemicals and the compliance of supply labelling and safety data sheets.
