RAC adopts opinion to classify a flame retardant as carcinogen

Sep '10
The Committee for Risk Assessment (RAC) agreed with the proposal from Ireland to harmonise the classification of TDCP (Tris[2-chloro-1-(chloromethyl)ethyl] phosphate) across Europe as a carcinogen. This substance has currently no harmonised classification at EU level.

TDCP is used as a flame retardant.

The role of RAC in EU regulatory processes
RAC is responsible for preparing scientific opinions of the Agency on proposals for harmonised classification and labelling and other questions relating to risks to human health or the environment.

The final decision for harmonised classification and labelling will be taken by the European Commission through a comitology procedure.
