Based on the report, you can find that many warning symbols (pictograms), both old and new, introduced by CLP, located on the packaging of chemical products is not widely known. Reading the entire report gives a picture of the level of knowledge, and
thus shows the courses of action to be taken by Member States and their authorities and advisory and non-governmental organizations to increase the level of consumer knowledge, and thus ensure the safe use of chemicals everyday. Such activities should
not only help to reduce health risks, but also for the environment.
