Targeted consultations on harmonised classification and labelling to assign "Reproductive toxicity" to three substances | Consultation Period 01/04/2020 - 21/04/2020
On 9 June 2017, RAC adopted opinions on the harmonised classification and labelling of these three substances:
(*) N-carboxymethyliminobis(ethylenenitrilo)tetra(acetic acid)
(*) Pentapotassium 2,2',2'',2''',2''''-(ethane-1,2-diylnitrilo)pentaacetate
(*) pentasodium (carboxylatomethyl)iminobis(ethylenenitrilo)tetraacetate
It was concluded that they should be classified as Repr. 1B; H360D. New information has been provided by industry addressing the adopted classification for reproductive toxicity. Based on a request from the European Commission received on 3 December 2019, the Executive Director of ECHA gave the mandate to RAC to review the opinion of 9 June 2017 in relation to the classification for reproductive toxicity and/or the setting of a specific concentration limit.
The present consultation seeks comments on:
- whether, based on this new information the current RAC opinion on the classification for reproductive toxicity of these substances as Repr. 1B H360D should be revised;
- whether there is justification for setting a specific concentration limit.
All interested parties are invited to submit comments in direct relation to the subject of the targeted consultation via the commenting webform by 21/04/2020. The comments will be published on ECHA's website.
