Carc and Muta Directive, Annex I - Substances, Mixtures & Processes

This list contains a non-exhaustive inventory of substances based on Art. 2 carcinogen and mutagen (CM) definitions and Annex I of the Carcinogens and Mutagens Directive. Category 1A and 1B carcinogens and mutagens are derived from the CLP Regulation's Table 3 of Annex VI (1272/2008/EC). Employers are obligated to minimize worker exposure to these agents as far as possible, and must arrange for medical surveillance of workers exposed to these substances.

Gas oils (petroleum), hydro-treated vacuum; Heavy Fuel oil

A complex combination of hydrocarbons obtained by treating a petroleum fraction with hydrogen in the presence of a catalyst. It consists of hydrocarbons having carbon numbers predominantly in the range of C13 through C50 and boiling in the range of approximately 230°C to 600°C (446°F to 1112°F). This stream is likely to contain 5 wt. % or more of 4- to 6- membered condensed ring aromatic hydrocarbons. ecnumber: 265-162-9 casnumber: 64742-59-2
