Classification and SCL/GCL/M-factor summary tables

 

Classification tables have been developed in order to provide consistent and easily accessed information on nickel and nickel compounds classification and concentration limits.

These tables reflect the state of knowledge and information available at the time of their preparation. The classifications and concentration limits are restricted to the European Union, having been derived from CLP harmonized classifications or self-classification according to the CLP Guidelines when harmonized classifications do not exist. Classifications reflected in the tables are for pure substances only (without impurities). Questions or comments regarding these tables can be communicated to the Nickel REACH Consortia Secretariat – reach@nickelinstitute.org.
