Classification & Labelling & PBT assessment

DSD-DPD

General information

Name:
Cumene (Legal classification )
Status:
67/548/EEC annex 1
Index number:
601-024-00-X
ATP inserted:
19
ATP last update:
25/26
Remarks:
Legal classification according to CLP Regulation (67/548/EWG): A reason for non-classification can in principle not be given, as the basis for the respective authority decision is unknown. However, for cumene an EU-Risk Assessment Report is available, which is consistent to the reported classification according to CLP Regulation 67/548/EWG annex 1. So the 'reason for no classification' is set to "conclusive, but not sufficient for classification" on the basis of information reported in the EU-Risk Assessment Report for all endpoints, where no legal classification has been assigned by C&L authorities.
