An environmental product declaration is a method of communicating a product's environmental characteristics that can be used for all types of products or services. According to ISO 14025 environmental declarations are based on life cycle assessment
An environmental product declaration based on life cycle assessment is an extremely good way of meeting the customer's and authorities' demands for credible, easy to understand and comparable environmental information. The underlying life cycle assessment is also a very good basis for further improving the product's environmental characteristics.
CLP or CLP Regulation is the new European Regulation on Classification, Labelling and Packaging of chemical substances and mixtures. The legislation introduces throughout the EU a new system for classifying and labelling chemicals, based on the United Nations’ Globally Harmonised System (UN GHS).
CLP is about the hazards of chemical substances and mixtures and how to inform others about them. It is the task of industry to establish what are the hazards of substances and mixtures before these are placed on the market, and to classify them in line with the identified hazards. In case a substance or a mixture is hazardous, it has to be labelled so that workers and consumers know about its effects before they handle it.
