Harmonised classification: proposed substances

harmonised-classification-propositionsOn ECHA website has been published the following harmonised classification and labelling (CLH) proposals:

  • boric acid (EC 233-139-2 / 234-343-4, CAS 10043-35-3 / 11113-50-1); diboron trioxide (EC 215-125-8, CAS 1303-86-2); tetraboron disodium heptaoxide, hydrate (EC 235-541-3, CAS 12267-73-1); disodium tetraborate, anhydrous (EC 215-540-4, CAS 1330-43-4); orthoboric acid sodium salt (EC 237-560-2, CAS 13840-56-7); disodium tetraborate decahydrate (EC 215-540-4, CAS 1303-96-4); disodium tetraborate pentahydrate (EC 215-540-4; CAS 12179-04-3): the proposal, submitted by Sweden, seems to review the pre-existing harmonised classifications concerning the reproductive toxicity hazard of these substances.
  • methyl salicylate (EC 204-317-7; CAS 119-36-8): the proposal, submitted by France, would add the harmonised classification as follows: Acute Tox. 4, H302; Skin Sens. 1B, H317; Repr. 1B, H360D; Aquatic Chronic 3, H412.
  • isoxaflutole (ISO); 5-cyclopropyl-1,2-oxazol-4-yl α,α,α- trifluoro-2-mesyl-p-tolyl ketone (EC 604-222-4; CAS 141112-29-0): the proposal, submitted by Italy, would add to the pre-exiting harmonised classification the following hazard class/category: STOT RE 1, H372.

Harmonised classification: what companies can do?

Harmonised classification and labelling (CLH) proposals allows companies, interested in one or more proposed substances, to comment such classification. Those interested in such substances and who have data of interest may contact ECHA to communicate such info.
