REACH Integra determines the classification of substances and mixtures according to the criteria of the Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 (CLP) by analyzing their physical properties and toxicological and eco-toxicological effects.
To prepare these works, REACH Integra plans all the stages needed to compile existing information available through the REACH Registration of substances and public scientific literature.
Wherever possible, REACH Integra applies alternative methods to generate new information aiming to minimize test performance on properties and effects required, and therefore to be outsourced to laboratories. In the case of mixtures, for those instances where the hazard class allows so, methods are applied to complete the classification from the component information.
If new information needs to be created through substance and mixture testing, REACH Integra manages the outsourcing to laboratories that meet BPL certification requirements.
After the hazard classification of the substance or mixture has been obtained, REACH Integra selects the pictograms, signal words and the hazard and precautionary statements that must appear on the label.
