GHS

General Information

Name:
2-(2-methoxyethoxy)ethanol
Implementation:
EU
Remarks:

Please note that in 2017 Dutch authorities are reviewing the classification of this substance under their national scheme and, if they believe a change is required, they have indicated that they will submit a proposal to ECHA for a change in the agreed harmonised classification. This will relate to classification for toxicity to reproduction. The classification for fertility is based on the small amount of the methoxyacetic acid produced during metabolism.
