Public Classification and Labelling Inventory

How can companies get in touch with each other and when will they be able to do so? Would notifiers be put in touch with others if there is a disagreement over the classification?

In accordance with Article 41 of the CLP Regulation it is the responsibility of the registrant(s) and notifier(s) of the same substance to make every effort to come to an agreed entry included in the Public C&L Inventory. However, ECHA has received millions of notifications for more than 100,000 substances for the C&L Inventory. Thus, the process of agreement for such a large number of notifiers and substances will be long and requires the active involvement of all parties concerned.
