General Information

Implementation:
EU
Remarks:
Based on eye corrosion/irritation test results, the following changes are made to the harmonised classification: i) an additional classification is added (Eye Damage 1), ii) The labelling signal word is changed from "Warning" to "Danger" as a result of the new classification "Eye Damage 1", iii) An additional label is added "GHS05 - Corrosion". (The available data in this dossier and what is available for the category of thiocyanates suggest that the harmonised classification is possibly overclassifiying for some endpoints: thiocyanate ions are readily biodegradable making classification for aquatic toxicity questionable, and no data could be retrieved that supports classification for Acute tox - dermal Cat. 4 or Acute tox - inhalation Cat.4.)
