Disinfectant products containing hazardous substances must be labelled in accordance with the comprehensive labelling requirements in the retained Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 on the classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures (CLP Regulation), and where the product has been Authorised under the retained Regulation (EU) No 528/2012 (Biocidal Products Regulation or BPR) there are additional labelling requirements arising from that regulation.
