On September 27, the Committee of Risk Assessment (RAC) and the Socio-economic Analysis (SEAC) have agreed on four draft opinions on the uses of both chromium (VI) substances and 1,2-dicloroethane (EDC) under the authorization procedure.


The committees have also concluded on 10 opinions for the harmonized classification and labelling.


Some of the opinions include:


–       Acid Black 210 Na:



    • RAC has agreed to remove the existing classification based on the new information provided in the framework of the REACH regulation.



–       Dodecyl methacrylate



    • Based on the data under REACH RAC has agreed with the proposal given by Germany to remove the Skin Irrit. 2; H315, Eye Irrit. 2; H319 and the environmental (Aquatic Acute 1; H400 and Aquatic Chronic 1; H410) classifications, but to retain the STOT SE 3; H335 classification.



–       Ethanol, 2,2’ –iminobis-, N- (C13-15-branched and linear alkyl)derivatives



    • RAC is going to follow the proposal that was given by the Netherlands to classify this substance as toxic reproduction that may cause harm to an unborn child.
