One of the European Union regulations, familiar to technical translators in the field of chemistry, is the Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 (commonly known as the CLP Regulation) and its amendments or Adaptations to the Technical Progress (commonly known as ATPs).
The CLP Regulation is a European chemicals regulation from 2008 that implements the United Nations Globally Harmonised System (GHS) of Classification and Labelling of chemical substances and mixtures. It contains text blocks that are binding for the translator for hazard (H statements) and precautionary statements (P statements) for handling chemical substances.
The database contains all H and P statements of the European GHS in the 24 EU official languages. It contains in total 263 entries. All contents of the database have been extracted from the CLP Regulation, its amendments and corrections. A structural presentation of the statements as well as possible search and filter functions enable the translator to find them quickly and easily. It is available in TBX format and in MultiTerm’s proprietary formats.
