This means that we comply with the ECHA law within the EU. A legal requirements about exclamation sign at all of our bottles and packaging.
That means to you as a consumer that our product is safe for use in connection with fly tying. This means a readable text on our label and packaging, in country language, and not least because chemical products do not come close to children or inaccurate use. Both the consumer and the stores benefit that everything is in accordance with the law. And that the law is complied with and Raidzap products comply with the EU ECHA Act on Chemical Products.
CLP is the successor to the Dangerous Substances and Dangerous Preparations Directives; like these Directives, CLP requires chemicals to be classified for their hazards and labelled accordingly.
CLP was introduced to put into place a new EU-wide scheme for classification and labelling. For many years the EU had a robust system based on the Directives dealing with substances and mixtures. In other parts of the World there were other schemes – or nothing at all. After many years of international negotiations a “globally harmonised” scheme (GHS) was developed and published by the UN. The EU was the first major jurisdiction to amend its old scheme in favour of one based on the GHS. In doing so, however, it retained some important elements of the old system to avoid any loss of protection in the EU. OSHA in US. WHMIS in Canada.
We do it because we have to follow the CLP law in Europe for fly tying ” chemicals “. Any chemical needs the right warning / exclamation sign including what the bottle contain for safety reasons. On bottle and on package.!
But we run NON TOXIC ? – yes we do, but the law say CLP exclamation, even in NON TOXIC products.
Look around in your home, try find paint, glue, and other things. Everything comes with GHS exclamation in Europe, USA and Canada – WE do It to.
