EPMF workshop on the proposed classification of silver and silver compounds recently submitted by Sweden - 7 November 2019, Brussels
The EPMF workshop on the proposed classification of silver and silver compounds recently submitted by KEMI (the Swedish Chemicals Agency) will take place on 7 November.
KEMI’s proposal is to classify silver metal and silver nitrate as: Skin Sens. 1, H317; Muta. 2, H341; Repr. 1B, H360FD; Aquatic Acute 1, M-factor=10 (powder <1mm) and M-factor=1000 (powder <0.0001mm); Aquatic Chronic 1, M-factor=10 (powder <1mm) and M-factor=100 (powder <0.0001mm).
This classification has been proposed in the context of the Biocidal Products Regulation but will apply to other regulations (e.g.: REACH) and other applications (e.g.: jewellery, electronics, solar energy etc.) as well which will have important consequences on silver and silver compounds business.
