ECHA Consults on Seven Testing Proposals

The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has updated the Registry of Intentions with six new intentions and one new submission. The substances are: iprodione (ISO) (EC 253-178-9), colecalciferol, vitamin D3 (EC 200-673-2), maleic anhydride (EC 203-571-6), succinic anhydride (EC 203-570-0), disodium 4-amino-6-((4-((4-(2,4-diaminophenyl)azo)phenylsulfamoyl)phenyl)azo)-5-hydroxy-3-((4-nitrophenyl)azo)naphthalene-2,7-disulfonate (EC 421-880-6) and permethrin (ISO) (EC 258-067-9). The new submission is for medetomidine (CAS 86347-14-0), which was submitted by the UK Member State competent authority. Further information is available at: Current CLH intentions Submitted CLH proposals The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) is consulting on seven testing proposals on four substances. They are: 3,5-diamino-4-[[4-[[2-(sulfooxy)ethyl]sulfonyl]phenyl]azo]-2-[[2-sulfo-4-[[2-(sulfooxy)ethyl]sulfonyl]phenyl]azo]benzoic acid sodium salt with testing proposed for genetic toxicity in vivo, based on concerns identified by the registrant; esterification products of 4,4′-isopropylidenediphenol, ethoxylated and prop-2-enoic acid with proposed testing for reproductive toxicity (prenatal development); reaction mass of 2,2′-[(4-methylphenyl)imino]bisethanol and Ethanol 2-[[2-(2-hydroxyethoxy)ethyl](4-methylphenyl)amino] with proposed testing for reproductive and genetic toxicity in vivo; and reaction products of hexane-1,6-diol with 2-(chloromethyl)oxirane with proposed testing for dermal and reproductive toxicity. The deadline for comments on all is 2 January 2015. Further information is available at: http://echa.europa.eu/information-on-chemicals/testing-proposals/current.
