Wait for further instructions.

Inhalation:
Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband.
Move exposed person to fresh air. Keep person warm and at rest.
If not breathing, if breathing is irregular or if respiratory arrest occurs, provide artificial respiration or oxygen by trained personnel.
Get medical attention if symptoms occur.
If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical attention immediately.
In case of inhalation of decomposition products in a fire, symptoms may be delayed. The exposed person may need to be kept under medical surveillance for 48 hours.

Ingestion:
Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband.
Wash out mouth with water. Move exposed person to fresh air. Keep person warm and at rest. If material has been swallowed and the exposed person is conscious, give small quantities of water to drink.
Stop if the exposed person feels sick as vomiting may be dangerous
If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical attention immediately.
Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. If vomiting occurs, the head should be kept low so that vomit does not enter the lungs.
Get medical attention if symptoms occur.

Skin contact:
Flush contaminated skin with plenty of water.
Remove contaminated clothing and shoes.
Get medical attention if symptoms occur.
Wash clothing before reuse. Clean shoes thoroughly before reuse.

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 unlabeled containers.
Do not leave vessels/containers open.
Avoid product residues in/on containers.
Use appropriate containment to avoid environmental contamination.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure control
This substance is handled under Strictly Controlled Conditions in accordance with REACH Regulation Article 17(3) for on-site isolated intermediates and, in case the substance is transported to other sites for further processing, the substance should be handled at these sites under the Strictly Controlled Conditions as specified in REACH Regulation Article 18(4). Site documentation and standard operation procedures to support safe handling arrangements including the selection of engineering, administrative and personal protective equipment controls in accordance with risk-based management systems is available at each manufacturing site.
Written confirmation of application of Strictly Controlled Conditions has been received from every affected distributor and downstream manufacturer/user of the registrants intermediate.


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 European Standard EN 689 for methods for the assessment of exposure by inhalation to chemical agents and national guidance documents for methods for the determination of hazardous substances.
