How to apply the harmonised classification of titanium dioxide?

The classification of certain forms of titanium dioxide was published on 18.02.2020 as suspected of causing cancer by inhalation. The hazard category Carc. 2 with the hazard statement H351 (Inhalation) was assigned in the Regulation (EU) 2020/217 (14th ATP) amending Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP Regulation). In addition, provisions have been made for the classification of mixtures as well as regulations for the labelling of certain mixtures containing titanium dioxide with European EUH-phrases. The regulations will apply after an eighteen-month transitional period from 01.10.2021. However, they can already be applied now.
