Three new substances subject to public consultation
Public consultations have been opened by the ECHA for three substances regarding their classification in Annex VI of the CLP Regulation. ECHA invites all interested parties to provide comments regarding all classes for physical, health and environmental hazards.
The public consultations have been opened for the following substances:
- granulated copper (EC 231-159-6; CAS 7440-50-8) dossier submitted by France, proposing the following harmonised classification: Eye Irrit. 2, H319; Aquatic Chronic 2, H411.
- ethofumesate (ISO) (±)-2-ethoxy-2,3-dihydro-3,3-dimethylbenzofuran-5-yl methanesulfonate (EC 247-525-3; CAS 26225-79-6) dossier submitted by Austria, proposing the following harmonised classification in substitution of the existing one: Aquatic Acute 1, H400, M-factor=1; Aquatic Chronic 1, H410, M-factor=1.
- 1,2-benzenedicarboxylic acid, di-C8-10-branched alkylesters, C9-rich;  di-“isononyl” phthalate;  (EC 271-090-9 and 249-079-5; CAS 68515-48-0 and 28553-12-0) dossier submitted by Denmark, proposing the following harmonised classification in substitution of the existing one: Repr. 1B, H360Df
Public consultations usually last 45 days, and in this case these consultations will close on the 19th of May 2017.
Additional public consultation opened.
An additional public consultation has been opened for ethanol, 2,2'-iminobis-, N-(C13-15-branched and linear alkyl) derivatives (EC 308-208-6, CAS 97925-95-6). A public consultation had already been opened for this substance but, due to a technical issue, Annex I of the relevant dossier was not available. Therefore this additional public consultation has been opened regarding the hazard class of reproductive toxicity.
This public consultation will end on April 25th, 2017.
