We have experience with a range of hazard labels for a wide variety of industries and uses.
Due to the New CLP Regulations, you might find that you have run out of room on your product to display the required information. Our Multi Layer hazard labels offer the ideal solution to display all your information such as multi language, instructions, or other legal requirements.
Thanks to our digital label printing capability you do not have to worry about costly plate charges when making changes to existing hazard labels. It’s as simple as incorporating in new text or pictograms to existing artwork and then outputting the labels as usual. However, the legislation changes do mean that you might need to include extra information on your label. Getting creative is the key here, and luckily the power of digital and the option of our peel and reveal label product means it doesn’t have to be a complex scenario.
All our hazard labels are produced on a PP (Polypropylene) material. The base material used conforms with B.S 5609:1986 which is perfect for transport by Road, Rail, Air and Sea.
Our hazard labels fully comply with the ADR, RID, IMDG & IATA requirements. Some labels can be produced in a format suitable for automatic application and over print.
Chemical labels must now comply with the Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals created by the United Nations.
The CLP Regulation (European Regulation on Classification, Labeling and Packaging of substances and mixtures) was created by The European Commission to adopt this new GHS system. The regulation came into force on the 20th January 2009 and applies to all EU member states, including the UK.
CLP labels have been created to replace the various classifications and labeling standards that currently exist in different countries. The main objectives are to facilitate international trade in chemicals and to maintain the existing level of protection of human health and environment.
New pictograms with a white background are replacing the orange ones in the EU.
Make sure you learn what the labels mean and read the instructions to ensure safe use. Information on the CLP pictograms and on the label is available on the European Chemical Agency website: http://echa.europa.eu/web/guest/chemicals-in-our-life/clp-pictograms.
