Reclassification of petroleum substances

01 Oct 1998

EINECS, the European Inventory of Existing Chemical Substances, contains entries for 661 petroleum substances, all of which have to be classified and labelled under the Dangerous Substances Directive (DSD) for all the hazards that they present. Such classification has also to be mirrored in the information conveyed in the safety data sheets that must be made available for each of these substances.
