About this presentation
Following on from WSP’s explanation of current divergence issues under REACH, we’ll look at CLP divergence briefly, and discuss how all these divergences affect the label and SDS.
- Should we use a single SDS format for our products, and if so, should it be the EU format?
- When is it OK to use a single label for EU, GB and NI?
- Can we put EU-REACH registration information on the GB SDS?
- How do we deal with substances which hold an HCL which is different to an MCL?”
Janet Greenwood is a soil scientist by training who ended up in the chemical industry by accident, and liked it so much she has built her business, TT Environmental Ltd, around keeping the industry and its downstream users going, so that everyone can benefit from the very safe and comfortable way of life which the chemical industry provides. Starting in 2001 with IPPC/ Environmental Permitting, and then COMAH, TT Environmental (www.ttenvironmental.co.uk) moved into chemical classification work when CLP came in, and now supports the chemical industry in all these topics with consultancy, and CLP and SDS training (www.ghsclassificationcourses.com). As co-founder of the Chemical Regulations Self Help Group, TT Environmental also provides a discussion form on REACH and CLP to companies in the chemical supply chain of all sizes through confidential quarterly meetings (www.chemselfhelp.co.uk). During the coronavirus crisis, TT Environmental set up a daily email, “Coronavirus Chemicals Update”, to support Regulatory Affairs and HSE managers working from home, which is a mixture of technical updates, moral support, and funny or inspirational video clips, and a daily vlog with some of the email highlights. As the crisis subsides, the newsletter and vlog are now once a week, but remain an important way for TT Environmental to support the chemical industry, including breaking the news about Annex VIII to CLP being accidentally retained in UK law.
