UVCB Classification Guidance

Guidance on the classification of inorganic UVCB substances for Human Health hazards.

This industry note describes a tiered approach and its application to hazard classification of inorganic UVCB substances for human health hazards. The information necessary to conduct the assessment is identified at 3 levels: elemental composition, mineralogy / speciation, and information on bioaccessibility.

The tiered methodology described here has been implemented in the online tool MeClas which complies with the UN GHS and EU CLP classification procedures and is available free of charge at www.meclas.eu
