After postponing the publication several times, today February 13, 2012, ECHA publishes the C&L inventory of Chemicals that are present on the European market.
The database allows any person to retrieve information about the classification of chemicals quite easily. All substances that are manufactured in or imported to the European Union > 1 ton/year per company or all substances that are classified as dangerous are listed in this database.
Information about hazard potential of a substance and applying hazard pictograms can be gathered when requesting the database.
Different classifications for one substance may occur as many substances were notified in the inventory before all REACH registrations and therefore necessary studies were performed. During the next years and the upcoming registration periods, the classification should become more and more harmonized.
