CLASSIFICATION OF MIXTURES – ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARDS

TS code: AM-TS6

OVERVIEW
The lecture describes each of the 2 classes for environmental hazards in accordance to Part 4 and 5 of Annex I to CLP, hazard classes: hazardous to the aquatic environment and hazardous to the ozone layer.

At the beginning of each hazard class, the key terms and definitions and classification criteria are provided, followed by the methods of mixtures classification as hazardous to the aquatic environment or to the ozone layer.
Then, for each hazard class, label elements are presented, including pictograms, signal words, standerised hazard and precautionary statements.


LEARNING OBJECTIVES
The aim of the lecture is to introduce trainees to CLP classification rules for environmental and additional hazards.
The lecture is supplemented with exercises (see AM-E-TS6).
After the training session (lectures and excercises), trainees should:
– be able to classify mixtures according to the given criteria into the category: acute 1, chronic 1-4;
– be able to calculate acute aquatic toxicity and chronic aquatic toxicity, using the mathematical formulas given.
