Do you really comply with all legislative obligations?
And are you sure you know which ones concern you?

One of the common problems we encounter is imperfect awareness of the full spectrum of responsibilities and obligations that our clients must fulfill. While they comply with the regulations and law, they are aware of, they often do not know of some of the relevant legislation. Usually, it’s only discovered in the process of a control carried out by competent authorities. These companies are unknowingly exposing themselves to the risk of sanctions or remedial measures, in the best case.

We solve everything for you, or we will train your employees so that they can fulfill their obligations independently.


We carry out a detailed analysis and define the legislative obligations of your company (under REACH, CLP, Detergents Regulation and Biocidal Products and Active Substances Regulation). Subsequently, we provide training to show you how to fulfill your legislative obligations.


We check whether you are complying with all obligations when importing chemicals or products from third countries. In these cases, you are subject to the same legislative obligations as producers within the EU.


We check if you comply with the conditions for placing hazardous chemical products on the market under your own name. Then, for example, the obligation to register in the Ministry of Health register (CHLAP) applies to you (for companies based in the Czech Republic).


We provide our clients with professional support throughout the entire cooperation. You can write or call us any time.


We monitor all the legislative changes that apply to you, and we notify you of any changes through electronic infomails.


We systematically check the correct setting of the chemical legislation compliance system in your company. We provide this service both internally or externally (by sending documents).


By finding out the current status, we will set up smoothly functioning
management of your Safety Data Sheets and other documentation.

In this step, we conduct a thorough analysis of all your existing practices and and currently processed documents and review whether you comply with applicable legislation. We will then process your Safety Data Sheets in detail.

We offer to our clients two methods for executing the entire process:
You can send us your complete documentation electronically, and we will carry out all acts externally – in our company. Alternatively, subject to prior agreement, we will come to you and internally resolve everything at Your company.

It is up to you which option will best meet your requirements.

We identify and resolve any discrepancies in product classification.

In case of missing documents we request them for you from your suppliers.

We will prepare Safety Data Sheets, including the legally correct design of labels in various language versions.

We check the correctness of the graphic design of the labels (placement of information on the label, size of the warning symbols, etc.).

If the obligation under Section 22 of the Chemical Act applies to you, we will save the created Safety Data Sheets into the MZdrav (CHLAP) register (for Czech based companies).

We designate detergents correctly and produce the relevant ingredient datasheets.

We create labels for biocidal products and arrange their notification in the MZdrav (CHLAP) register (for Czech based companies).

We will manage your database of safety data sheets including their archiving.

We will check the completeness of the e-commerce legislation requirements (online sales, e-shop).

Chemical legislation within our consulting service

REACH

The REACH regulation applies not only to the registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction of chemicals but also to the creation of Safety Data Sheets. The format of Safety Data Sheets is specified in the Commission Regulation (EU) 2015/830. Safety Data Sheets are a basic source of information on chemical substances or mixtures – one could call it a "bible" for chemicals or mixtures.



REGULATION (EC) No 1907/2006 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH), establishing a European Chemicals Agency, amending Directive 1999/45/EC and repealing Council Regulation (EEC) No 793/93 and Commission Regulation (EC) No 1488/94 as well as Council Directive 76/769/EEC and Commission Directives 91/155/EEC, 93/67/EEC, 93/105/EC and 2000/21/EC (REACH).

Consolidated text

CLP

The CLP Regulation deals with classification, labeling and packaging of chemical substances and chemical mixtures, the classification being the basis not only for the labeling and packaging of products (chemical substances and mixtures), but also for creation of Safety Data Sheets. The regulation also includes the List of Harmonised Classification and Labelling for Certain Hazardous Substances, which is part of Annex VI of this Regulation.


REGULATION (EC) No 1272/2008 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL on classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures, amending and repealing Directives 67/548/EEC and 1999/45/EC, and amending Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 (CLP).


Consolidated text

Detergents

The Detergent Regulation covers washing and cleaning agents, and defines the specific ingredients (concentration ranges, groups of substances or specific substances using their INCI names), which are subsequently placed on labels and Safety Data Sheets. Ingredient datasheets are either for healthcare professionals or for consumers.


REGULATION (EC) No 648/2004 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL on detergents.

Consolidated text

Biocides

The Biocidal Products Regulation covers placing biocidal products and active substances on the market. Labeling of products has its specifics (for instance indication of active substance concentrations in metric units). Each biocidal product may only contain approved active substances or active substances that are in the revision phase. Moreover, they can only be used for the approved biocidal product type.


REGULATION (EU) No 528/2012 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL concerning the making available on the market and use of biocidal products.

Consolidated text

ADR

The ADR agreement was negotiated by the European Economic Commission, and its aim is to reduce the risks associated with the road transport of dangerous goods, their reception or handling. At the same time, the ECE, through the ADR Agreement, unifies the conditions for classification of hazardous substances in the relevant classes, requirements for packaging and labeling with safety labels, requirements for vehicles and their equipment, requirements for relevant accompanying documents, requirements for drivers, handling persons, and persons involved in the transport, their training and requirements for security advisors.
