This document introduces the topic of the EU Classification, Labelling and Packaging (CLP) regulation.The target audience is South African exporters of essential oils and vegetable oils.
this document is in three parts:
• Introduction to CLP
• Details about CLP
• How CLP applies to South African indigenous essential oils and vegetable oils.
This document is not a substitute for the regulations and official guidance. However, it provides a mix of “theory and practice” and aims to demystify CLP and how it applies to South African essential oils and/or vegetable oils.
In the theory section, the basic workings of the CLP are presented: how the classification process works, and where the reader can find more information. The theory sections are a useful precursor to studying the CLP regulation and the CLP guidance, and the South Africa national standard on GHS.
In the practice sections, South African exporters see how the CLP regulation applies to four indigenous essential oils and four indigenous vegetable oils. South African exporters can use this information in their safety data sheets and labelling, provided that, after examining this information, they are satisfied that it matches their own classification information.
Annex 1 presents the specific technical information about the classification and labelling of rose geranium oil, buchu oil, cape chamomile oil, Helichrysum oil, baobab oil, Kalahari melon seed oil, manketti oil, marula oil and Ximenia oil. This information is published in the classification and labelling inventory on the website of the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) and provided as part of the notification process by the EU importers of these ingredients.
