General Information

Implementation:
EU
Type of classification:
self-classification
Remarks:

The available information indicate that the main constituent of Basic Orange 064 is expected to not possess any skin/eye irritating potential. However, the composition of the Basic Orange 064 lots currently manufactured hve more lactic acid, in addition to that involved into the salification of the base, since the substance is produced directly in a highly concentrated lactic acid solution.

The exceeding lactic acid bring to the classification of the substance; on the basis of the worst-case approach (i.e. lactic acid likely content higher than 10 %), the Basic Orange 064 should be classified as skin irritating (skin Irrit. 2, H315) and as able to cause serious eye damage (Eye Dam 1, H318).

Therefore, the formulation currently manufactured is classified as hazardous based on the available data, according to the criteria of the CLP (Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008. Therefore, specific Risk Management Measures are required. The exposure of workers during and after normal operations should be minimised by the use of good industrial hygiene practices, the general measures necessary for safety and health protection of workers (article 6 of Directive 89/391/EC) and the reduce-to-a-minimum principle (article 6 of Chemical Agents Directive 98/24/EC).
