PennWhite Introduce New "CLP" Product Labels

PennWhite will shortly introduce new Classification, Labelling & Packaging (CLP) compliant labels for use on its IBCs and 200Kg drums. The label will feature CLP hazard symbols (when appropriate), as well as full emergency contact numbers and individual product details. A QR Code link to the PennWhite website will provide quick access to downloadable Technical Data Sheets and other useful product and safety information.

CLP is a legislative measure instigated by the EU to align its existing standards on the classification, labelling and packaging of chemicals with the Globally Harmonised System of Classification & Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) established by the United Nations. All chemical "mixtures" must be CLP compliant by June 2015, PennWhite's new labels will ensure the organisation achieves full CLP compliance by Spring 2013.
