C&L Inventory

What is the Classification and Labelling Inventory?

This database contains classification and labelling information on notified and registered substances received from manufacturers and importers. It also includes the list of harmonised classifications (Tables 3.1 and 3.2 of Annex VI to the CLP Regulation) and the names of harmonised substances translated in all EU languages. 

Companies have provided this information in their C&L notifications or registration dossiers. ECHA maintains the C&L Inventory, but does not review or verify the accuracy of the information.

The number of notifications and substances in the database will increase over time as companies submit more C&L notifications and registration dossiers. As such, the data in the public inventory itself is refreshed on a regular basis.

The continuous improvement of the information stored requires a joint effort from all involved parties. Notifiers are encouraged to check the classifications for their substances in the Inventory and update their notifications if necessary. 



Information in the C&L Inventory

The following information is published according to CLP (Article 42):

  • the name in the IUPAC nomenclature for substances classified with certain hazard classes or categories set out in Article 119(1)(a), without prejudice to Article 119(2)(f) and (g) of REACH 
  • the name of the substance as given in EINECS, if applicable, and other numerical identifiers as appropriate and available
  • the classification and labelling of the substance

All notifications for any published substance are included in the C&L Inventory.  This includes notifications for non-classified substances.

Searching the C&L Inventory

Fill in your search criteria and read and agree to the legal disclaimer to perform a search. See the results table and click on the icon in the View column to see the summary of classification and labelling for a substance.

The summary of classification and labelling page will display the harmonised classification and labelling according to CLP criteria if a substance has a harmonised C&L.

The notifications received from a joint submission in the REACH registration process are also flagged accordingly.

All notifications for the same substance are grouped based on their numerical identifiers, and are displayed together.

Identical notifications for the same substance are merged and the number of notifiers is indicated. There can be multiple classifications for the same substance due to, for example, the different composition, form or physical state of the substance placed on the market.
