The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) is consulting on new and revised harmonised classification and labelling (CLH) considerations following proposals by the UK.

  • Esfenvalerate has been proposed for a revised entry in Annex VI of the CLP Regulation for Acute Tox. 3, H301; ATEoral = 88.5mg/kg; Acute Tox. 2, H330; ATEinhal = 0.48mg/L; Skin Sens. 1, H317; STOT RE 2 H373; Aquatic Acute 1, H400, M-factor = 10,000; Aquatic Chronic 1, H410, M-factor = 10,000. The CLH report is available here. Desmedipham is a broad spectrum contact and ingested pyrethroid insecticide used for the control of pests in agriculture, horticulture, forestry and amenity use.

  • Ethametsulfuron-methyl has also been proposed by the UK for a new entry in Annex VI of the CLP Regulation for Eye Irrit. 2, H319; Aquatic Acute 1, M-factor = 1000, Aquatic Chronic 1, H410; Aquatic Chronic 1, M-factor = 100. The CLH report is available here. Ethametsulfuron-methyl is an active substance used in the formulation of the plant protection product “Salsa”, which is used as a herbicide.

  • Trifloxystrobin for a revised entry in Annex VI of the CLP Regulation for Skin Sens. 1, H317; Aquatic Acute 1, H400; Aquatic Acute 1, M-factor = 10; Aquatic Chronic 1, H410; Aquatic Chronic 1, M-factor = 10. The CLH report is available here. Trifloxystrobin provides protection to crops from the damage caused by plant pathogenic fungi.

Comments should be received by 1 March 2019 through the individual substance links at the ECHA website.

Following the inclusion of the substance in Part 3 of Annex VI to the CLP Regulation, all manufacturers, importers and downstream users of the substance in the EU must classify the substance in accordance with the entry in Annex VI (Article 4(3) of the CLP Regulation).
