Abstract This Directive contains an updated Annex I to Directive 67/548/EEC (see CIS 92-23), with a list of dangerous substances together with their identification numbers, chemical name, EC and CAS numbers, classification and labelling codes, concentration limits (if any) and notes relating to preparations containing them. Certain entries from previous lists have been deleted or changed. The labelling of preparations containing 1,3-butadiene is to be modified, as the substance has been reclassified as mutagenic. Annex V of the 1967 Directive, concerning the methods for the determination of the physical and chemical properties, the toxicity and the ecotoxicity of substances and preparations, is also modified in order to reduce to the maximum extent possible the number of animals needed for experiments.
