Evaluation of new substances
The Group recalled that when submitting new substances for evaluation by the GESAMP/EHS Working Group, a full set of data, addressing all the relevant information requirements set out in the GESAMP/EHS Product Data Reporting Form, is required.
The Group further noted that insufficient data, or a lack of adequate supporting arguments, where estimates had been used, would result in no rating being assigned for the hazard concerned or, as a worst case, no full hazard profile being issued for the chemical under review.
The Group considered the following new substances*, which had been submitted for evaluation to this session:
Acrylated EVAC polymer (MW 50,000 – 60,000) in ethylhexanol and diethylene glycol EHS 2568.
Polyethylene glycol monooleate EHS 2569.
Dimethyl carbonate EHS 2570.
Dodecanoic acid, 1-methylethyl ester EHS 2571.
Pongamia/Karanja seed oil crude EHS 2572.
*The names of the substances shown in the list directly under paragraph 3.2 are in accordance with the submissions prior to GESAMP/EHS 60. The names agreed by GESAMP/EHS following consultation with the submitters are shown from paragraph 3.4 onwards and in annex 3.
