Table 3.1 of Annex VI (CLP) provides classification and labeling entries according to the criteria of CLP, whereas the entries in Table 3.2 are according to the DSD criteria. The former CLP categories 1 and 2 are now 1A and 1B CMR categories, and the former category 3 has been changed to category 2. The criteria for CMR classification is equivalent, and the number of classified substances will stay the same as under the former EU legislation.
There will be no further impact on cosmetics products from the CLP deadline of Nov. 30, 2010, because Regulation (EC) No. 1223/2009 defines its own labeling rules and cosmetic products are excluded from the scope of CLP in this regard. In Article 15 of Regulation (EC) No. 1223/2009, the EU Commission, in order to implement the provisions of the paragraph, will amend the Annexes of the regulation within 15 months. For now, all amendments to the annexes are still made in the Cosmetics Directive 76/768/EEC.
