CLP Labels

Navigating the complexities of CLP regulations can be a daunting task for candle makers. However, with the correct candle labels, you can ensure your products not only captivate with their design but also comply with essential safety standards. Our comprehensive selection of CLP-compliant labels is designed to effectively communicate hazards and precautions, making them indispensable for hobbyists and professionals.

Is CLP labelling a legal requirement? 

Yes, CLP regulation, or classification, labelling and packaging, ensure the safe supply and use of hazardous substances/mixtures by enforcing specific labelling requirements.
Your candle and wax melt labels must be correctly labelled as per CLP regulations before putting them on the market and selling them to your customers. You'll need to apply your CLP labels directly to the immediate packaging or product to ensure consumers easily identify them.
Requirements for CLP candle labels will differ from product to product, but most will need the following components:

clp labels guide

Product Identifier/Name

Your product identifier is simply the name of your product, fragrance or mixture. It must be present at the top of your candle label to outline your product.

Allergen Information

Any allergen ingredients that form your product's hazards must be displayed here; no more than four are recommended to avoid confusion. However, more than four is only acceptable if necessary due to the severity or nature of the hazard it imposes.

Hazard Pictograms

Hazard pictograms are used to visually represent the hazards your products may cause. Therefore, you must use the correct hazard pictograms to classify your particular substance or mixture. 

Signal Word

The signal word on your CLP label will differ depending on the classification of your hazardous substance/mixture and details the severity of the hazard to the consumer. For less severe hazards, you should use the signal word' warning,' for more severe hazards, use 'danger.' 

Hazard and Precautionary Statements

Depending on the hazards of your product, you will need to include specific hazard statements outlining the possible dangers and their severity. Precautionary statements are also required to help your customers prevent or reduce the risk to the health of humans or the environment.

Supplier Address and Phone Number

Although your address and phone number are mainly required for insurance and liability purposes, it's also crucial that your customers can contact you about your product. Therefore, if you don't have a business address or phone number yet, you will still need to provide an address and phone number on your CLP labels. This includes your business name, legal ownership name and an address where others can send legal documents.
