France's proposed classification for Phosphine submitted for public consultation

ANSES has submitted a proposal to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) for phosphine to be classified for its toxicity following acute inhalation exposure (Category 1). It was submitted for public consultation on the ECHA website on 12 February 2018 for a period of 60 days, to give all stakeholders the opportunity to present their comments, scientific arguments or any additional information they have at their disposal.

Following this public consultation, a final opinion will be adopted by ECHA's Committee for Risk Assessment and sent to the European Commission, which will decide whether or not to include the classification of phosphine in the CLP Regulation (on classification, labelling and packaging of products).
