No specific assessment has been made of the effect of the directly-acting EU Single Market regulation 1272/2008 (CLP) on small scale manufacturers of candles and other scented goods or on the competitive position of EU-based scented oil manufacturers. However, in 2007, the Health and Safety Executive carried out an initial regulatory impact assessment of the overall costs and benefits from the implementation of CLP.
