  • 7-oxabicyclo[4.1.0]hept-3-ylmethyl 7-oxabicyclo[4.1.0]heptane-3-carboxylate (EC 219-207-4, CAS 2386-87-0): the proposal made by Ireland includes the following classifications: Skin Sens. 1, H317, Muta. 2, H341 and STOT RE 2, H373.

The proposed classifications will be evaluated by the Committee for Risk Assessment (RAC)
