Eni is committed to compliance with applicable European and extra-European legislation (depending on the country of production and/or marketing) regarding its products and activities. Legislation in this area has merged into two regulations: the so-called REACH and CLP Regulations.

The two regulations governing product safety

European and extra-European legislation obliges companies to assess the risks related to the production, import, marketing and use of substances and blends across the entire the supply chain and to take all necessary steps to manage any risks identified. The currently recognized legislation in the field of product safety has been merged at the European level in two regulations: the REACH Regulations and CLP Regulations.

REACH Regulations

Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and Council of 18 December 2006 concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH), applies to the manufacture, placing on the market or use of substances, as such or in preparations or as articles and aims to ensure the highest level of protection for human health and the environment, including the promotion of alternative methods for the assessment of hazards of such substances. 

CLP Regulations

Regulations Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 of the European Parliament and Council of 16 December 2008 on the classification, labelling and packaging of substances and blends, amending and repealing Directives 67/548/EEC and 1999/45/EC and amending Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006 harmonizing the criteria for classification of substances and blends, and the rules on the labelling and packaging of hazardous substances and blends.
