Module 19, EU CLP (GHS) Labelling for Supply
The supply label is the primary means by which handlers and users of products are made aware of the hazards to their health and the environment. Following on from the classification of substances and mixtures, it is imperative that products are correctly labelled.
This module covers the EU label elements including pictograms, signal words, hazard statements and precautionary statements. Delegates will be shown how to pull these elements together into a label which is compliant in content and format. The module will also cover rules for affixing of labels, language, tactile warning devices, updating of labels and packaging requirements.
Who Should Attend
This module is mainly aimed at those responsible for ensuring that supply labelling is compliant and Safety Data Sheet writers.
It is recommended that delegates also attend Module 17 and Module 18 to gain a complete understanding of CLP.
Benefits Of Attending?
Attendance on this series of modules will ensure that your SDSs and labels meet the increasing expectations of both your customers and the regulators. To ensure the most effective training with optimum involvement in participative exercises, there will be a limit of 14 on the number of students.
IOSH members are entitled to include this module in their continuing professional development records.

The 'Brexit' outcome from the June 2016 referendum is unlikely to affect the importance of compliance with EU legislation on classification and safety data sheets. As is the case now, businesses supplying chemicals in other EU Member States or in the European Economic Area will continue to have to comply with European law. The future requirements on those supplying chemicals only in the UK may only become certain when the terms of the exit have been agreed, however UK legislation is expected to remain aligned to EU legislation, at least in the short term.
