Organiser Chemical Hazards Communication Society (CHCS)
Location Manchester

An understanding of the CLP Regulation and the rules for classification of products is essential to ensure that the correct classification is used in preparing good Safety Data Sheets. Specifically this module will build on the knowledge gained in Module 17 (Substances) and equip delegates to deal with classification of mixtures. 

What You Will Learn

The module will include sessions covering the following topics:

  • CLP Classification – general issues
  • Discussion of new ways of classification including expert judgement, weight of evidence influences, bridging principles, generic cut-off values.
  • Classification using listed substances
  • How to get data from the Annexes.
  • Classification for Physical effects
  • Criteria for classification, use of flow charts, bridging and calculations – includes Explosives, Flammables (all types), Oxidisers, Gases, Self-reactives, Pyrophorics, Organic peroxides and Corrosion to metals.
  • Classification for Health effects
  • Includes Toxicity, Corrosion to Skin & Irritancy, Eye damage & Irritancy, Sensitisation, CMRs, STOT (single & repeat exposure), Aspiration.
  • Classification for Environmental effects (Acute and Chronic Aquatic toxicity, Hazard to the Ozone Layer)
  • Putting it all together to fully classify a mixture

Exercises will be held throughout the day to assist in the understanding of the concepts introduced.

Delegates should be aware that this module addresses the EU CLP regulation which differs in some aspects to the GHS and other regional implementations of the GHS. Where possible differences to GHS will be highlighted during the training.
