CLP - Classification of SiC

CLP, the EC Regulation No 1272/2008 on classification, labeling and packaging of substances and mixtures (CLP Regulation) came into force in January 2009 and requires that European companies classify substances placed on the market and notify the classification and labeling to the ECHA for a central inventory.

Following the CLP-Regulation Silicon Carbide (curde and grains) is classified as non-hazardous substance .

SiCMa would like to confirm that SiC intentionally does not contain any substance listed in the candidate list for substances of very high concern. SiCMa members follow very closely the developments of the candidate list and in case of the presence of such a substance in products produced by SiCMa members they will inform their clients automatically as foreseen under the REACH Regulation.

With respect to the classification of SiC fibres SiCMa prepared a notice to explain the current situation:

  • Statement of the Silicon Carbide Manufacturers

  • For any questions regarding the CLP notification of silicon carbide please visit the ECHA website or address the SiCMa.
