General Information

Implementation:
EU
Type of classification:
harmonised classification
Remarks:

Calcium chloride is manufactured in several forms (as anhydrous substance, mono-, di-, tetra- and hexahydrate). According to the REACH Guidance for identification and naming of substances under REACH, hydrates and water free (anhydrous) forms of compounds shall be regarded as the same substance. The reported classification and labelling are considered to be applicable for all forms of calcium chloride, unless stated otherwise.

Calcium chloride is included in Annex VI of EU Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures (CLP) Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 and is classified as Eye Irrit. 2 (Hazard statement: H319: Causes serious eye irritation). However, based on the results of the available studies, anhydrous calcium chloride needs to be classified as Eye Irrit. 1 (Hazard statement: H318: Causes serious eye damage).  For calcium chloride hydrates, classification as Eye Irrit. 2 (Hazard statement: H319: Causes serious eye irritation) is still considered applicable. Nevertheless, in accordance with Article 4, point 3 of EU Classification, Labeling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures (CLP) Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008, if a substance is subject to harmonised classification and labelling in accordance with Title V through an entry in Part 3 of Annex VI, that substance shall be classified in accordance with that entry, and a classification of that substance in accordance with Title II shall not be performed for the hazard classes or differentiations covered by that entry. Based on this, classification of calcium chloride as Eye Irritant Category 2, H319 is used by the registrant in this dossier.
