Abstract This revised guide (see CIS 95-1064 for previous edition) sets out the general principles of classification and labelling for supply as required by the Chemical (Hazard Information and Packaging for Supply) Regulations 1994 (CIS 95-23), as amended in 1997. The main changes relate to: a new R-phrase (R65) and criteria for chemicals which could cause lung damage if swallowed (aspiration hazard); new criteria for the classification of chemicals as sensitizers; and a labelling derogation for propane, butane and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).
