ECHA has published its annual evaluation report, delivering updated statistics on evaluated substances and registration dossiers and giving advice to registrants on how to improve the information they provide on chemicals.
Guidance on Annex VIII to CLP – poison centres notifications
The first version of Guidance on harmonised information relating to emergency health response – Annex VIII to CLP is now available on ECHA’s website.
The document explains the provisions of Article 45 and the new Annex VIII to the CLP Regulation and provides duty holders with practical advice on how to comply with their obligation to submit information on the hazardous mixtures they place on the market.
Guidance on labelling and packaging according to CLP updated
The updated version of Guidance on Labelling and Packaging in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 takes into account the changes brought to the CLP Regulation by Annex VIII, including the introduction of the unique formula identifier (UFI), a new labelling element required for hazardous mixtures. It also contains new practical examples of the labelling of co-axial cartridges.
Consultation on harmonised classification and labelling
ECHA is looking for comments on the harmonised classification and labelling proposals for the following substances:
Silanamine, 1,1,1-trimethyl-N-(trimethylsilyl)-, hydrolysis products with silica; pyrogenic, synthetic amorphous, nano, surface treated silicon dioxide (EC 272-697-1, CAS 68909-20-6). The substance is mainly used as an active substance in biocidal products used as insecticide, acaricide and products to control other arthropods. It has no existing harmonised classification and labelling in Annex VI to CLP. Comments are invited on selected physical, human health and environmental hazards.
3-methylpyrazole (EC 215-925-7, CAS 1453-58-3). The substance is an industrial chemical mainly used as a fertiliser in agriculture, and with uses in forestry and fishing. It has no existing harmonised classification and labelling in Annex VI to CLP. Comments are invited on selected human health hazards, including developmental toxicity and specific target organ toxicity (lung) after repeated exposure.
