Impact of Annex VIII to CLP Implementation in GB to Chemical Business Association Members

10 May 2022

It recently came to our attention that the National Poisons Information Service (NPIS) were informing companies that Annex VIII to CLP has been retained in GB law following Brexit. However, this is in direct contradiction to what we were informed by DEFRA and HSE in that it would not be copied across to GB legislation. Had it been copied across at that time, it would have meant that hazardous mixture notifications to NPIS would have been mandatory for consumer and professional use products sold in GB as of the 1st of January 2021. As this only has only come to light more than a year later, something has clearly gone amiss and in any event, if it is to be adopted then industry will incur significant costs and require sufficient time to implement these requirements of which the benefits and justifications are debatable.
