What does a CLP label look like?

What does a CLP label look like?

The main points to note on the new CLP label are:

 

1. Signal Words 'Danger' and 'Warning' replace Indications of Danger e.g. 'Toxic', 'Harmful'. The signal word gives information about relative hazard level  and alerts user to potential hazard.

 

  • Danger: indicates the more severe hazard categories
  • Warning: indicates the less severe hazard categories


Note: Where the signal word ‘Danger’ is used on the label, the signal word ‘Warning’ shall not appear on the label (Article 20).

 

2. Hazard (H) Statements and Precautionary (P) Statements replace Risk (R) and Safety (S) Phrases.

 

  • A ‘Hazard Statement’ means a phrase assigned to a hazard class and category that describes the nature of the hazards of a hazardous substance or mixture, including, where appropriate, the degree of hazard (Article 2 & 21);
  • A 'Precautionary Statement' means a phrase that describes recommended measure(s) to minimise or prevent adverse effects resulting from exposure to a hazardous substance or mixture due to its use or disposal (Article 2 & 22);

 

3. Pictograms - square set on a point with red border, white background, with black symbols are the new visual representation of the relevant hazard and replace Symbols - orange background with black symbols. (Article 19).
