Harmonised classifications according to the Dangerous Substances Directive now available

Harmonised classifications according to the Dangerous Substances Directive are
now available in the Classification & Labelling Inventory. The classification
and labelling of all harmonised substances included on Annex VI to the CLP
Regulation according to the criteria set out in the previous Dangerous
Substances Directive (DSD) will now be available in the C&L Inventory. This is
in addition to the classification and labelling according to the CLP criteria,
which were already included.

This addition is to help users who still classify and label their mixtures
according to the DSD. Although fully replaced by the CLP Regulation for
substances, the DSD criteria can still be applied to mixtures up until June
2015. The categorisation of harmonised substances according to the Seveso II
Directive is also included. All substances will be searchable using their
substance identity (such as name, EC number, Index number etc.) but only CLP
criteria can be used when searching for particular classifications.
