The Dangerous Preparations Directive[1] is a European Union directive in the field of occupational safety and health and consumer protection. It complements the Dangerous Substances Directive (67/548/EEC) and replaces a previous Dangerous Preparations Directive (88/379/EEC).[2] The European Court of Justice had ruled in 1985 that Dangerous Substances Directive (67/548/EEC) applies only to pure substances, not preparations (mixtures of substances).[3]
