According this Directive a Classification and Labelling Inventory will be developed based on the notifications by industry of dangerous substances and on the information on classification and labeling included in the REACH registration dossiers. Any manufacturer or importer who places on the market a dangerous substance requiring registration under REACH, must notify the Agency of the following:

a) identity of the manufacturer or importer;

b) identity of the substance(s);

c) hazard classification of the substance(s);

d) hazard label of the substance(s);

e) specific concentration limits.

The Agency will create and maintain this inventory in the form of a database, which shall be publicly accessible.

Related legislation

The "Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS)", addresses classification of chemicals by types of hazard and proposes harmonized hazard communication elements, including labels and safety data sheets. It aims at ensuring that information on physical hazards and toxicity from chemicals be available in order to enhance the protection of human health and the environment during the handling, transport and use of these chemicals. The GHS also provides a basis for harmonization of rules and regulations on chemicals at national, regional and worldwide level, an important factor also for trade facilitation.
