GHS

General Information

Name:
4-aminophenol
Implementation:
EU
Remarks:
Harmonized classification from Table 3.1 , Annex VI of Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008:
Muta. 2 : H341
Acute Tox. 4 : H332
Acute Tox. 4: H302
Aquatic Acute 1: H400
Aquatic Chronic 1: H410
Additional self-classification:
Skin Sens 1: H317
STOT RE 2: H373
This is proposed self-classification and adherence to the harmonized classification will continue to be followed.
