One of the major advantages we offer our clients involves quick and verified information they need.

I would like to share an e-mail from a client preparing to sell chemicals online. The client has the following doubts:

"Before we launch our products on the internet, we want to know if there are any special requirements regarding packaging or for chemicals?"

I am convinced that our answer will help many of you, so I want to share it:

"At online sales every buyer must be informed on all hazards of the chemical before making a decision to put the product in the cart.

To satisfy this condition, the website must contain the following data:

  • GHS (CLP) pictograms,
  • signal word,
  • H-statements,
  • EUH statements.

Some companies decide to show the entire CLP label, which is also OK.

Otherwise, there are no special demands for labelling and packaging. As with normal sales, the label must be in Slovenian language and harmonised with Section 2.2 of the SDS. We've already written about this topic in our blog.

If the product involves "very hazardous" chemicals, then the packaging must be equipped with a tactile warning or safe fastening for children. Here is the link to the Slovene document.

Please, click on an additional link to the Slovene document that contains concise instructions for label generation."

As you can see, my advice is simple and specific.

It contains everything you need to safely advertise chemicals in an online shop.

If you don't have the time to read all chemical legislation and update your chemical documentation, perhaps it is time that we help you with your issues.

Information on this blog is prepared with utmost care, but it is not about (chemical) consulting, and the provider does not assume any responsibility or liability for the correctness, accuracy and up-to-dateness of published content. If you need advice for a specific case, you can write to us at
