REACH and CLP are the EU main chemical legislations. CLP requires manufacturers of chemical substances and mixtures to classify their products with regard to hazardous properties and to assign the relevant information to the product’s label. The hazard symbols and the wording shown on the label give a first short overview on the identified hazards and the most essential precautionary measures. REACH regulation additionally requires a Safety Data Sheet for each product classified as hazardous to be provided to the customers concerned. Information contained in the Safety Data Sheet is much more detailed compared to the label. As most printing inks and related materials are classified as hazardous under CLP, correct application of the recommendations related to safe use provided on the label and in the relevant chapters of the Safety Data Sheet is the basis to ensure protection of workers‘ health in the print shops and also of the environment.
