Please note:

Testing:

Please ensure you conduct your own testing to ensure you are satisfied with the finished product as the above information only provides you with a starting point for your testing.

CLP:

Your CLP label must be present at the point of purchase, meaning that if you sell online, the CLP information must be present on the product page. You are required by law to label your products and packaging. Our CLP label design tool is freely available to create your labels for all your products.

Generic Warning Labels: You may be able to use a generic warning label if the used oil doesn`t trigger any hazard warnings under CLP regulation. You can confirm this by referring to our free CLP label design tool to ensure you remain legally compliant, as the generic warning label doesn`t display any hazard-relating information.
