Basic info

Status Withdrawn
Submitter France
Regulatory programme
  • Chemical registered under REACH
Further substance information Reason for withdrawal: As “work involving exposure to respirable crystalline silica dust” is now included in the Directive 2017/2398/CE, French MSCA considers that the need to propose a classification as carcinogen for crystalline silica has an added-value for human health protection mostly if consumer uses is identified. However, no consumer use leading to a significant exposure to crystalline silica by inhalation has been identified. Therefore, French MSCA has decided to withdraw the intention to submit a CLH report for this substance.
