LIST provides Commodo/CLP Toolkit following the publication of the new “Omnibus” law

The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) released today a new « Commodo/CLP Toolkit » allowing companies to easily determine their “commodo” class for the storage and use chemical products and if there is a possible class change following the changes of the “commodo” nomenclature and the new “Omnibus” law.

The toolkit consists of three parts:

  • The Commodo/CLP Excel Tool: A simple and functional tool, in the form of an MS Excel file, to collect your data and define the “commodo” class.
  • The Commodo/CLP Guide: The guide presents the legal modifications, helps the user to fill in the tool and explains the consequences of the outcome
  • A case study based on the experience of the Luxembourgish company LCI Flowey Sarl, that you can directly download here.

This toolkit is available in French and can be downloaded for free via the REACH&CLP Helpdesk Website.


Classified installations according to the Law of 10 July 1999, known as “commodo”, are subjected to a strict legislation. The “Omnibus” law of 3 March 2017 aiming at administrative simplification modified the law on classified establishments with a transitional provision to comply with the changes of the “commodo” nomenclature of 2012 until 1 July 2017.

Installations concerned by the changes of the nomenclature of 2012 are, among others, also installations storing and using chemical products. These same installations have also to respect the requirements of the CLP Regulation (Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 on the classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures).
