For small packages (<125 ml) containing chemicals such as insecticides, is the CLP P501 sentence “dispose of the contents / container in compliance with local regulations” sufficient to fulfill the obligations set out in Decree No. 116/2020?

Where the manufacturer / supplier of the chemical product reports the sentence P501 on the label, it is believed that the latter, if it also refers to the packaging, can also be considered valid to satisfy the indications for collection provided for by the environmental labeling of packaging intended for final consumers (without prejudice to the need to report the identification code of the packaging material according to Decision 129/97 / EC and the indications on the family of material).

Examples of P501 phrases to be placed on the label, both under the CLP Regulation and under the environmental labeling, could be:

  1. “Dispose of container in accordance with local regulations”
  2. “Dispose of contents and / or container in accordance with local regulations”.
