HSG228 CHIP for everyone

HSG228 CHIP for everyone

Chemicals (Hazard Information and Packaging for Supply) Regulations 2009 (CHIP)

If you supply chemicals (in any volume or amount) you will need to know about the Chemicals (Hazard Information and Packaging for Supply) Regulations 2009 – known as the CHIP Regulations.

This book gives you a basic introduction to CHIP. It explains how the Regulations work. It will help you decide what you should do about CHIP and whether you should get help.

Important – changes to the law
The laws covering chemicals are changing. The CHIP Regulations are being replaced by the new European Regulation on classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures, known as the CLP Regulation.

The CLP Regulation already applies to chemical substances when they are placed on the market. This means, if you supply any chemical substance(s) (but not a preparation) you should already be classifying, labelling and packaging that substance according to the CLP Regulation.

If you supply a preparation (the CLP Regulation uses the term ‘mixture’) you do not have to apply the CLP Regulation until June 2015, but you can choose to do earlier so if you wish. From 1 June 2015 the CLP Regulation takes over and most of CHIP will be revoked.

This second edition of CHIP for everyone explains your duties and obligations under the CHIP Regulations and is not intended as a detailed guide to the CLP Regulation. Part 8 of this guide provides links to guidance on the CLP Regulation.

This print version has been produced under license by Dandy Booksellers and will be printed to order. It contains the same content as the HSE document but, for copyright reasons, has our own covers.
