The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has launched an additional public consultation on the harmonised classification and labelling (CLH) for carcinogenicity of epsilon-metofluthrin. The public comments will be closed on 13 April 2016.
The proposal for harmonised classification and labelling (CLH) of epsilon-metofluthrin was submitted by the Health and Safety Executive in the United Kingdom and was subject to a public consultation, which ended on 14 August 2015.
Subsequently, a new study on chimeric mice was submitted to ECHA. As these study results were not initially subjected to public consultation, ECHA would like to provide the parties concerned with a second opportunity to comment on this hazard class. The basis for this additional public consultation is the same CLH report which was previously subject to public consultation and the additional chimeric mouse study.
