New chemical preparations Directive in the offing

A draft EC Directive on the classification, packaging and labelling of dangerous preparations has been agreed by the European Commission. It will replace the 1988 preparations Directive and extend a duty from existing EC rules on dangerous substances to classify preparations as "dangerous for the environment". Pesticides will be brought into the legislation's scope for the first time.
