The following examples of classification and labelling illustrate the steps to determine the category of hazard using the five steps mentioned above, and then how the hazards for that category are communicated on the label.The ECHA guidance contains examples for all the physical, health and environment hazards.
Annex 1 presents actual examples from the ECHA C&L Inventory database for selected essential oils and vegetable oil that are known to originate from South Africa, where the C&L Inventory has that information.
The classification and labelling information in the C&L Inventory for these essential oils and vegetable oil would have been added by the EU companies that were placing
6.1 Physical hazard
these substances on the EU market, under their notification responsibilities.
For physical and health hazards, vegetable oils are generally classified as not hazardous according to the criteria established by CLP (and by GHS). However there could be environmental hazards.
Essential oils, on the other hand, are generally known to meet the criteria for hazardous for a number of the physical hazard classes, such as flammable liquid, health hazard classes such as respiratory or skin sensitisation (and other as well) and environmental hazards such as hazardous to the aquatic environment. The appropriate hazard statements, signal word, pictograms and precautionary statements would need to be on the label.
   definition: Flammable liquid means a liquid having a flash point of not more than 60 °C. 6.1.1 Decision logic for determining the category of flammable liquid
