RAC Adopts CLH for Four Insecticides

In May 2020, the Committee for Risk Assessment (RAC) adopted the harmonised classification and labelling (CLH) opinions for four active substances all used as insecticides and that all carry risks to human health and the environment: cyfluthrin, beta-cyfluthrin, silanamine and acetamiprid.

The European Commission will now consider the RAC’s opinions to decide whether to accept this proposal for harmonised classification and labelling.

What is the role of the RAC in EU regulatory processes?

The committee is responsible for preparing scientific opinions related to the risks of chemicals to human health and the environment for the following processes:

  • applications for authorisation
  • proposals for restrictions
  • proposals for harmonised classification and labelling and
  • occupational exposure limits (OELs).

The RAC also prepares opinions on specific questions relating to risks of chemicals to human health or the environment and on any other aspects concerning the safety of substances at the Executive Director’s request. The final decisions are taken by the European Commission through a comitology procedure. Further information can be found here.
