European Union

The European Union has implemented the GHS through the CLP Regulation. Nevertheless, the older system based on the Dangerous Substances Directive will continue to be used in parallel until 2016. Some R-phrases which do not have simple equivalents under the GHS have been retained under the CLP Regulation: the numbering mirrors the number of the previous R-phrase.

EUH018: In use may form flammable/explosive vapour-air mixture

EUH019: May form explosive peroxides

EUH044: Risk of explosion if heated under confinement

Health properties

EUH029: Contact with water liberates toxic gas

EUH031: Contact with acids liberates toxic gas

Environmental properties

EUH059: Hazardous to the ozone layer

Other EU hazard statements

Some other hazard statements intended for use in very specific circumstances have also been retained under the CLP Regulation.[6] Note that, in this case, the numbering of the EU specific hazard statements can coincide with GHS hazard statements if the "EU" prefix is not included.
