The European Union adopted regulations (EC) 1907/2006 REACH e (EC)1272/2008 CLP, to manage chemicals. REACH requires for evaluation and management of risks connected to the use of chemical substances, while o CLP provides for the classification, labelling and packagings of dangerous substances and mixtures by implementing in the EU the UN Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling applying the building block approach, that is taking on board the hazard classes and categories which are close to the existing EU system in order to maintain the level of protection of human health and environment. This regulation provides also for the notification of the classification and labelling of substances to the Classification & Labelling Inventory established by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA). Some european downstream regulations making reference to the classification criteria, as the health and safety laws at workplace, need to be adapted to these regulations.
