Regulation (EU) 2023/707 Introducing New Hazard Classes

As you know, On March 31st, 2023, the European Commission published the Delegated Regulation (EU) 2023/707 amending Regulation(EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP) as regards hazard classes and criteria for the classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures.

This amendment introduces the following hazard classes:

– Presumed (Cat. 1) and Suspected (Cat. 2) Endocrine disruptors (ED)
– Persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic (PBT)
– Very persistent and very bioaccumulative (vPvB),
– Persistent, mobile and toxic (PMT)
– Very persistent and very mobile (vPvM)

⏳ The new classifications will come into force on May 1st, 2025 for substances and on May 1st, 2026 for mixtures. A transition period of eighteen months is foreseen for substances already on the market on May 1st, 2025 and a transition period of two years is granted for mixtures already on the market on May 1st, 2026.

‍Our team is already working on this topic to make the transition as straightforward as possible for our customers!
