Classification and labelling of Antimony Metal


Classification and labelling according to CLP/GHS

Antimony is currently not classified according to Annex VI of regulation (EC) 1272/2008, Index No. 051-003-00-9.

However, based on the read across from diantimony trioxide (CAS 1309-64-4) to antimony (CAS 7440-36-0) the following self-classification and labelling is proposed:


Antimony powder (Representative sample)

Remarks: respirable fractions

CLASSIFICATION
 Carc.2 (H351)


LABELLING  
 SIGNAL WORD Warning
 HAZARD PICTOGRAM  GHS08: health hazard

 HAZARD STATEMENTS H351: suspected of causing cancer by inhalation
 PRECAUTIONARY STATEMENTS

P202: Do not handle until all safety precautions have been read and understood.

P281: Use personal protective equipment as required

P308+P313: If exposed or concerned: Get medical advice/attention.

P405: Store locked up. 


Antimony massive (Representative sample)

Remarks: non-respirable fraction, massive.
No classification, hence no labelling.

Classification and labelling according to DSD (Annex I of Directive 67/548/EEC)

Antimony is not legally classified as laid down in Annex I of Directive 67/548/EC. However, based on the read across from diantimony trioxide (CAS 1309-64-4) to antimony (CAS 7440-36-0) the following self-classification and labelling is proposed:



Antimony powder (Representative sample)

Remarks: respirable fraction


CLASSIFICATION
 Carc. cat 3; R40

LABELLING
 INDICATION OF DANGER Xn - harmful
R-PHRASES R40 - limited evidence of carcinogenic effect
 S-PHRASES

S2 - keep out of the reach of children
S22 - do not breathe dust

S36/37 - wear suitable protective clothing and gloves 
.

Antimony massive (Representative sample)

Remarks: non respirable fraction, massive.
No classification, hence no labelling.
