NEW MSDS AVAILABLE GERANIOL BIOCIDE PUR TT

MAJOR UPDATE
NEW MSDS AVAILABLE
GERANIOL BIOCIDE PUR TT
Harmonized Classification and Labelling
Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2020/1182 of 19 May 202

  • New MSDS for Geraniol Biocide Pur TT 
  • Consequences for the labelling of your Product. 

As part of the review, a harmonized classification of the substance is required. Such a classification under the CLP regulation can be initiated by different parties. In this case the initiative came from Denmark and one of the reasons was the differences in self classification of geraniol, a substance manufactured and imported in the EU in over 1,000 tonnes per year.
Several decisions on the approval of active substances are delayed because of lack of harmonized classification. For geraniol this will not be a delaying factor.

Before the Regulation 2020/1182

GERANIOL (CAS 106-24-1) was classified for skin and eye irritation/damage and sensitization.
Skin Irrit. 2 H315 : Causes skin irritation
Eye Dam. 1H318 : Causes serious eye damage
Skin Sens. 1 H317 : May cause an allergic skin reaction

And associated with the 2 following pictograms : GHS07 & GHS05

After the Regulation 2020/1182

Following the new regulation, the harmonized classification/labelling of Geraniol is now the following :
Skin sensitizer 1, H317: May cause an allergic skin reaction. pictogram GHS07
Associated with only this GHS07 Pictogram:

What are the consequences for the classification/labelling of products containing geraniol?

Concentration of geraniol in the mixture: Geraniol Content (X): 0,99 % < X > 0.1 %

Mixtures not classified as sensitising* but containing at least one sensitising substance (such as Geraniol) shall bear the statement:

EUH208 — ‘Contains (name of sensitising substance). May produce an allergic reaction’

In this case, your product will not be considered as a sensitizer, so; “GHS07”, nor “Warning”, nor “H317“ should be mentioned in Instructions For Use.

However, EUH208– Contains geraniol. May produce an allergic reaction should be present on the label.

Concentration of geraniol in the mixture: Geraniol Content: X >=1.0 %

This concentration limit is used to trigger classification of a mixture as a skin sensitiser.

In this case your product, without contradictory data, will be considered as a sensitizer with symbol GHS07, “Warning” and Skin Sens. 1 H317 : May cause an allergic skin reaction

Deadline

As this harmonized classification is less severe ,for Geraniol, compared to the current one, most companies will not wait adapting their labels, SDS’s, … until the deadline (March 1th, 2022). You can immediately process to the modifications.

 

*Attention: if the product contains other ingredients also classified as skin sensitizers, the concentrations have to be added up!
