Delegated Regulation (EU) 2021/849 of 11 March 2021 has been published in the Official Journal of the European Union on 28 May 2021. It is the 17th ATP (Adaptation to Technical and Scientific Progress) of the CLP Regulation (Classification, Labelling and Packaging of substances).

In its “Whereas”, the text of this Regulation recalls that the new provisions it contains are the consequence of proposals to introduce, update or delete harmonised classification and labelling of certain substances which have been submitted to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA).
Based on the opinions on those proposals issued by the Committee for Risk Assessment of the Agency (RAC), as well as on the comments received from the parties concerned, the harmonised classifications and labelling of several substances, 14 of which may be used in cosmetic products, have therefore been modified for seven of them or added for seven others.
This Regulation shall apply from 17 December 2022.
