Classification and labelling

Current Directives related to the classification, packaging and labelling of dangerous substances (Directive 67/548/EEC) and preparations (Directive 1999/45/EC) aim at ensuring the safe production, transport, use and disposal of chemicals throughout the supply chain by harmonising label warnings and Safety Data Sheets. Certain provisions of these two Directives will be replaced after a transitional period by an upcoming proposal for a Regulation on the Classification, Labelling and Packeging of Substances Mixtures (COM/2007/0355).

TBBPA is in the process of being classified under these Directives as an R50-53 substance (toxic to aquatic species).
