The harmful effects of chemicals on humans and the environment, environmental destructions that can be seen for many years as a result of accidents that may occur are known by the whole world. In this context, the CLP Regulation, which is one of the measures that can be taken, was published on 30 December 2008 with the European Parliament and Council Decision No EC/1272/2008 and entered into force on 20 January 2009.
