||This document consists of the full text of the United Kingdom Chemicals (Hazard Information and Packaging for Supply) Regulations 2009, which came into force on 6 April 2009. These regulations are also known as CHIP 4. CHIP is the law that applies to suppliers of dangerous chemicals. Its purpose is to protect people and the environment from the effects of those chemicals by requiring suppliers to provide information about the dangers and to package them safely. CHIP requires the supplier of a dangerous chemical to identify the hazards (dangers) of the chemical and provide information about the hazards to their customers. Suppliers usually provide this information on the package itself in the form of a label and package the chemical safely. The regulations are accompanied by an explanatory memorandum.
