This call for tender is for a study on workability issues concerning the implementation of Annex VIII of Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 on harmonised information relating to emergency health response and preventative measures
  • Number: 637/PP/GRO/IMA/17/1131/9616

The objectives of this study are:

  • to analyse the workability of certain provisions of  Annex VIII to Regulation 1272/2008 on classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures (Regulation (EU) 2017/542 on harmonised information relating to emergency health response) in relation to certain industries with complex material inputs and supply chains 
  • to investigate and propose options to address the workability issues raised by some stakeholders if they are confirmed, without losing necessary information for appointed bodies/poison centres to perform their duties in accordance with Article 45 of the CLP Regulation 

Background

Following Art. 45(1) of the Regulation 1272/2008 on classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures ('CLP Regulation'), importers and downstream users placing hazardous chemical mixtures on the market shall submit to Member State appointed bodies information relating to those mixtures for emergency health response. Art. 45(4) furthermore required the European Commission to carry out a review to assess the possibility of harmonising the information to be submitted. As a result of this review, the Commission proposed an amendment to the CLP regulation specifying harmonised information requirements as well as a harmonised format for submission of information.

On 22 March 2017, Commission Regulation (EU) 2017/542 was adopted, amending Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council on classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures by adding an Annex on harmonised information relating to emergency health response ('Annex VIII to CLP').
