The United Nations’ GHS in a European coat

Are you familiar with CLP? CLP stands for Classification, Labeling and Packaging. It is the EU implementation of the worldwide United Nations standard GHS (Globally Harmonized System). The European Union in 2009 adopted the CLP Regulation, which is the framework for the classification and labeling of chemical substances and mixtures in the European Union. Are you looking for specialist help in complying with your CLP obligations? Then Trade Wind is the place to go. We specialize in labeling chemical substances and authoring and translating Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS or SDS).

So-called Workplace Instruction Cards (‘WICs’) are another important instrument when you are handling chemicals. WICs must be drawn up in accordance with the CLP Regulation. You can rely on Trade Wind to guide you in the process. We have the knowledge and expertise to draw up and translate any MSDS or WIC you may need. Alternatively we can offer you our specialist software program ExESS. Lisam ExESS gives you the assurance that you always work with the latest information available. This allows you to meet all the CLP requirements.
