Status Opinion development
Details on the scope of restriction Restriction on the placing on the market or use of 2,4 dinitrotoluene in articles for supply to the general public or to professional workers in concentrations greater than 0.1 % weight by weight.
Reason for restriction 2,4-dinitrotoluene (2,4-DNT) is classified under Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP) as a carcinogen category 1B, H350 (may cause cancer) and was therefore included in the candidate list for authorisation (13/01/2010; ED/68/2009 ) and into Annex XIV of REACH (Commission Regulation (EU) No 143/2011) on the basis of Art 57(a) of REACH with a sunset date of 21/08/2015. Following an assessment of the available evidence in accordance with Article 69(2) of the REACH Regulation, ECHA considers that there are uses of 2,4-dinitrotoluene in articles that pose a risk that is not adequately controlled. This Annex XV restriction proposal addresses those risks in articles not already regulated.

  • Remarks: Stakeholders are requested to provide information relevant to the Dossier Submitter during the call for evidence. This information will be used, amongst other issues, to determine if any derogations are required for the potential restriction as these cannot be proposed without adequate risk and socio-economic information. If a derogation is not proposed by the Dossier Submitter then it will be incumbent on the relevant stakeholders to do so during any consultation process with a full risk and socio-economic justification accompanying it.
