Handling and storage

Manufacture and use of this chemical intermediate take place under strictly controlled conditions, as described in Art. 17/18 REACH. The substance is rigorously contained during manufacturing and use and appropriate risk management measures including PPE (e.g. during charging or sampling) are applied. Occupational exposure is reduced to a minimum and well controlled by measurements. A management system covering all general aspects of a chemical production is in place, especially cleaning and maintenance of plants and equipment. An authorisation scheme based on instructions covering the whole process ensures that only trained and authorised staff handles the substance.

Precautions for safe handling: Put on appropriate personal protective equipment.

Eating, drinking and smoking should be prohibited in areas where

this material is handled, stored and processed. Workers should

wash hands and face before eating, drinking and smoking. Do not

ingest. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Keep in the

original container or an approved alternative made from a

compatible material, kept tightly closed when not in use. Empty

containers retain product residue and can be hazardous. The

product is registered with strictly controlled conditions as defined in

Article 17(3) or 18(4) of regulation (EC) no. 1907/2006 (REACH

Regulation) and must therefore be handled as such. Refer to the

industry guidance prepared by Concawe/Cefic/EFCG for advice on

the confirmation of strictly controlled conditions.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: Store in accordance with local regulations. Store in original

container protected from direct sunlight in a dry, cool and wellventilated

area, away from incompatible materials and food and drink. Keep container tightly closed and sealed until

ready for use. Containers that have been opened must be carefully

resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Do not store in

unlabelled containers. Use appropriate containment to avoid

environmental contamination.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters

Exposure limit values: Not available.

Recommended monitoring procedures: If this product contains ingredients with exposure limits, personal,

workplace atmosphere or biological monitoring may be required to

determine the effectiveness of the ventilation or other control

measures and/or the necessity to use respiratory protective

equipment. Reference should be made to monitoring standards,

such as the following: European Standard EN 689 (Workplace

atmospheres - Guidance for the assessment of exposure by

inhalation to chemical agents for comparison with limit values and

measurement strategy) European Standard EN 14042 (Workplace

atmospheres - Guide for the application and use of procedures for

the assessment of exposure to chemical and biological agents)

European Standard EN 482 (Workplace atmospheres - General

requirements for the performance of procedures for the

measurement of chemical agents) Reference to national guidance

documents for methods for the determination of hazardous substances will also be required.

Exposure controls

Risk management measures

Occupational exposure controls

Technical measures: The substance shall be rigorously contained by technical means

during its whole lifecycle including manufacture, purification,

cleaning and maintenance of equipment, sampling, analysis,

loading and unloading of equipment or vessels, waste disposal or

purification and storage. Procedural and control technologies shall

be used that minimise emission and any resulting exposure. In

cases of accident and where waste is generated, procedural and/
