Helsinki, 10 December 2014 - During its plenary meeting at the end of November to early December 2014, the Committee for Risk Assessment (RAC) discussed and adopted opinions for harmonised classification and labelling of ten inorganic copper compounds. RAC agreed with France to classify all of them among others as very toxic to aquatic life with long lasting environmental effects.
