EUH208 Phrase – differences between Raw Materials and Formulations
There is a different rule in the regulation (and therefore Formpak) for raw materials vs formulations for phrase EUH208 of CLP. This means EUH208 will appear automatically for Formulations but not for Raw Materials.
EUH208 phrase is “Contains (name of sensitising substance). May produce an allergic reaction”.
For additional background the CLP Regulation in ATP No. 286/2011 says:
Mixtures containing at least one sensitising substance.
The label on the packaging of mixtures not classified as sensitising but containing at least one substance classified as sensitising and present in a concentration equal to or greater than that specified in Table 3.4.6 of Annex I shall bear the statement:
EUH208 – “Contains (name of sensitising substance). May produce an allergic reaction”.
Mixtures classified as sensitising containing other substance(s) classified as sensitising (in addition to the one that leads to the classification of the mixture) and present in a concentration equal to or greater than that specified in Table 3.4.6 of Annex I shall bear the name(s) of that/those substance(s) on the label.
Where the mixture is labelled in accordance with Section 2.4 or 2.5, the statement EUH208 may be omitted from the label for the substance concerned”
