Trade bodies back European Parliament support for CLP rules revision

Cosmetics Europe and the International Fragrance Association (IFRA) have backed European Parliament support for the revision of Classification, Labeling and Packaging of Chemical Substances and Mixtures (CLP) regulations.

Changes to the CLP welcomed by the trade bodies include the classification of renewable substances of botanical origin and the grouping of substances.

The adoption of the European Parliament position means that a key part of the Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability (CSS) is falling into place, they said.

“The changes that Members of the European Parliament brought to the draft regulation – specifically through specific provisions for the classification of renewable substances of botanical origin – are essential to supporting the future of the natural ingredients used in cosmetics and fragrances,” said Cosmetics Europe director-general John Chave.

“These play an essential role in meeting the EU’s own ambition to boost the bio- and circular economies”.

In a related development, the UK Office for Product Safety & Standards (OPSS) has published guidance on the use of carcinogenic, mutagenic and reprotoxic substances in cosmetic products.

‘Cosmetic products: exemption process for CMR substances’ outlines timelines for such use, and that only the Secretary of State for Business & Trade can grant exemptions for England, Scotland and Wales.
