Commission launches public consultation on revision of central piece of chemicals legislation

The European Commission has launched a public consultation on the revision of the CLP Regulation.

This revision is one of the 85 actions planned in the Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability, adopted by the Commission in October 2020 as the first step towards the zero pollution ambition. Various options for revision will be analysed in an impact assessment and, based on the results, the Commission will present legislative proposals for a revision of both the enacting terms of and the annexes to that Regulation.

Interested parties are invited to share their views until 15 November 2021.
