New consultations launched on harmonised classification and labelling proposals for three substances

The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has launched three new public consultations on the harmonised classification and labelling (CLH) proposals for:

  • 2,3-epoxypropyl methacrylate (EC 203-441-9),
  • 3,3′-dicyclohexyl-1,1′-methylenebis(4,1-phenylene)diurea (EC 406-370-3) and
  • spiroxamine (ISO) (CAS 118134-30-8).

2,3-epoxypropyl methacrylate has an existing harmonised classification and the dossier submitter (the Netherlands) proposes additions and changes to the human health hazard classes. The CLH proposal for 3,3′-dicyclohexyl-1,1′-methylenebis(4,1-phenylene)diurea is submitted by Germany which proposes to remove the existing harmonised classification for skin sensitisation and toxicity to the aquatic environment. The final date for submitting comments for these two substances is 22 June 2015. The CLH proposal for spiroxamine (ISO) is submitted by Germany which proposes to add specific target organ toxicity – repeated exposure (STOT-RE) to the existing harmonised classification. The previous CLH proposal, submitted in 2014, proposes revisions of some health and the environmental hazard. These hazard classes were open for public commenting in July/August 2014 and are now under discussion by ECHA’s Risk Assessment Committee (RAC). The final date for submitting comments for spiroxamine (ISO) is 4 June 2015. Further information is available at: Current CLH consultations
