New consultations for harmonised classification and labelling launched on one industrial and one biocidal substance
ECHA has launched two public consultations on the harmonised classification and labelling proposals for isoeugenol; ; (E)-2-methoxy-4-(prop-1-enyl)phenol; ; (Z)-2-methoxy-4-(prop-1-enyl)phenol;  (CAS No. 97-54-1 ; 5932-68-3 ; 5912-86-7 ) and 2,3,5,6-tetrafluoro-4-(methoxymethyl)benzyl (1R,3R)-2,2-dimethyl-3-[(1Z)-prop-1-en-1-yl]cyclopropanecarboxylate; Epsilon-metofluthrin (CAS 240494-71-7). These substances do not have existing harmonised classification.
Isoeugenol is used as fragrance and flavouring agent in numerous non-food and food products and as an anaesthetic for fish. The proposal is limited to the assessment of skin sensitisation.
Epsilon-metofluthrin is used in biocidal products within the EU, including use as an insecticide for the control of flying insects (e.g. mosquitos). The dossier submitter, United Kingdom, is proposing human health and environmental classification. The final date for submitting comments is 14 August 2015.
