The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has launched a 45-day public commenting period on the harmonised classification and labelling (CLH) proposal for 5-chloro-2-(4-chlorophenoxy)phenol (EC number 429-290-0) submitted by Austria. This substance is used, for example, in human hygiene biocidal products, private and public health area disinfectants and food and feed area disinfectants. There is currently a harmonised classification for this biocidal active substance, and the dossier submitter is proposing additions of M-factors for the environmental classification. The final date for submitting comments is 24 April 2015.
