The CLP adaption law leads to changes in several German legislations.
Although the CLP legislation was issued as a regulation, that means, it applies directly in any member state, a few ordinances have to be implemented in national legislation of the different member states.
As in 2008, the REACH-adaption law already cut down most parts of the German ChemG (Chemical law) there are now only a few changes for the CLP-adaption.
Besides the numerous changes of definitions (mixture/preparation) and new names for European institution, there are important changes on the obligation of notification of dangerous preparations to the Poison Control Center. Up to now, only certain dangerous preparations that were sold to the broad public and biocides had to be notified. After the changes, any dangerous preparation, weather sold to the broad public or not, has to be notified. Even small tonnages are not exempted.
For those who now have to notify their preparation the first time, a transition period is granted, if they provide their safety data sheets to the Information Center for Safety Data Sheets (Informationsstelle Sicherheitsdatenblatt, ISi) of the Institute for Work-Safety (Institut für Arbeitsschutz, IFA) at the German State Accident Insurance (Deutsche Gesetzliche Unfallversicherung, DGUV).
In addition to the ChemG., the CLP adaption law has also impacts on the German ElektroG (implementation of the WEEE and RoHS directives), Wasch- und Reinigungsmittelgesetz (detergents) and Pflanzenschutzmittel (pesticides).
