4.2 Types of classification
7. Reproductive toxicity (Categories 1A, 1B and 2) plus additional category for effects on or via lactation
8. Specific target organ toxicity (STOT) – single exposure ((Categories 1, 2) and Category 3 for narcotic effects and respiratory tract irritation, only)
9. Specific target organ toxicity (STOT) – repeated exposure (Categories 1 and 2)
10. Aspiration hazard (Category 1)
2. Hazardous to the ozone layer (Category 1)
   There are two types of classification: harmonised classification and self-classification
 4.2.1 Harmonised classification
Harmonised classification refers to the decision taken at EU level for the classification of substances. The information is published in Table 3 of Part 3 of Annex VI of the CLP regulation. The table includes classification and labelling requirements for more than 4,000 substances. There are no harmonised classifications for essential oils and vegetable oils form South Africa.
The use of a harmonised classification and labelling of a substance (when one exists) is mandatory. It has to be
4.2.2 Self-classification
All substances and mixtures that do not have a harmonised hazard classification or for which a harmonised classification covers only selected hazards classes or differentiations,
applied by all suppliers of the same substance. Under the CLP Regulation, harmonisation of classification applies primarily to Carcinogenic, Mutagenic and Reproductively toxic (CMR) properties and respiratory sensitisation (all health hazards). The harmonisation of classification of other properties is done on a case-by-case basis.This means that where there are gaps in the harmonised classification the manufacturer, importer or downstream user has to perform a self-classification for those properties.
have to be self-classified. Substances are self-classified by manufacturers and importers. Mixtures are self-classified by importers and downstream users.
