CLH proposal submitted for MBIT

On July 3, 2017, the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) announced that Poland submitted a proposal for harmonized classification and labeling (CLH) of MBIT (2-methyl-1,2-benzothiazol-3(2H)-one) according to CLP Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 on classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures.

MBIT is a new active substance supported by Dow, recently recommended for approval by the BPC, without an existing harmonized EU classification.

Poland’s proposal is based on the data submitted by Dow as part of the BPR dossier for product type 6 (preservatives for products during storage).
