This regulation updates Annex VI of regulation 1272/2008 by updating the harmonised classification of 22 substances already listed under Annex VI, and by adding 26 newly harmonised substances to the same Annex.
The 9th ATP will come into force on March 1st 2018, but companies can already start using it on a voluntary basis.
