Since 31 May 2016, this proposal has been the subject of a public consultation on the ECHA website to enable interested stakeholders to present their points of view, scientific arguments or any additional information they have at their disposal.

Consultation closes 15 July 2016

After this public consultation, which will close 15 July 2016, the process of examining the classification proposal will follow the steps laid down by Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 on classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures, known as the CLP Regulation, until the adoption of a final opinion by ECHA's Committee for Risk Assessment. On the basis of this opinion, the European Commission will decide whether to include the classification proposed by ANSES in the CLP Regulation.

Comments can be sent via a dedicated form on the ECHA website.
