The EC Regulation 1272/2008 on classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures (CLP Regulation) came directly into force throughout the EU in January 2009. It harmonises the European requirements for classification and labelling for supply with the recommendations of the United Nations.

The EU CLP Regulation, as amended, is retained in GB law. These arrangements mean that Great Britain continues to adopt GHS independently of the European Union.
