What is the REACH&CLP Helpdesk?

Are you a Luxembourgish company and have questions on REACH and CLP?
The REACH&CLP Helpdesk can help you!

According to the REACH Regulation (Article 124) and the CLP Regulation (Article 44) every Member State shall establish a national helpdesk.

In Luxembourg, the REACH&CLP Helpdesk is run by the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) on behalf of the Ministry of the Economy and the Ministry of the Environment, Climate and Sustainable Development. The LIST came into being on the first of January 2015 through the merger of the public research centres (CRP) Henri Tudor and Gabriel Lippmann. Before that date, the Helpdesk has been based in the Resource Centre for Environmental Technologies (CRTE) of the CRP Henri Tudor, which, since 1998, assumed the function of a neutral consulting platform accessible to private and public enterprises, the industry and the craft sector in Luxembourg.

The REACH&CLP Helpdesk is the national enquiry point for manufacturers, importers and downstream users of chemical substances. It offers Luxembourgish companies information and advice on the implementation of REACH and CLP and helps them with their questions on registration, evaluation, authorisation and restriction and the classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures.

The REACH&CLP Helpdesk is part of the European network of national helpdesks (HelpNet) which includes the REACH and CLP helpdesks of the Member States and of the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA).
