Classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures: Implementing the CLP Regulation

International Fresenius GHS Conference from 24 to 25 November 2011 in Mainz (Germany)

Dortmund, Mainz (Germany), 13 September 2011

The implementation of the CLP Regulation is a step towards a worldwide standardised system for classification and labelling of chemical substances and preparations. This Regulation adapts European legislation to the GHS (Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals). Professionals from Product Safety, Product Stewardship and Regulatory Affairs fields will meet from 24 to 25 November 2011 in Mainz (Germany) on the 3rd International Fresenius GHS Conference "Implementing the CLP Regulation" to discuss new developments.

The two-day conference will be about practical consequences for the implementation of the CLP Regulation and the GHS in Europe. The audience will learn about the handling of safety data sheets. International experts will show case studies for classification of mixtures. Representatives of the European Chemical Agency (ECHA) will report on the classification and labelling inventory list which contains basic information on notified and registered substances received from manufacturers and importers. The new Guidance Document on Labelling will be on the agenda as well as the interaction with other regulations. At last, the experts will discuss the impact of CLP/GHS on different product groups.

Speakers (please find below a brief selection):
