EU – Amendment on Article 25 of CLP Regulation Regarding Bespoke Paints

​In Article 25 of Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008, the following paragraph is added: ‘8. In the case of a bespoke paint for which no submission in accordance with Annex VIII has been made and no corresponding unique formula identifier has been created, the unique formula identifiers of all the mixtures contained in the bespoke paint in a concentration exceeding 0,1 % which themselves are subject to notification under Article 45 shall be included in the supplemental information on the label of the bespoke paint, located together and listed in descending order of the mixtures’ concentration in the bespoke paint, in accordance with the provisions of Section 5 of Part A of Annex VIII. In a case falling within the first subparagraph, where the concentration of a mixture with a unique formula identifier in the bespoke paint exceeds 5 %, the concentration of that mixture shall also be included in the supplemental information on the label of the bespoke paint next to its unique formula identifier, in accordance with Section 3.4 of Part B of Annex VIII. For the purposes of this paragraph, “bespoke paint” means a paint that is formulated in limited amounts on a tailor-made basis for an individual consumer or professional user at the point of sale by tinting or colour mixing.’
