Case Study | Supplied by ExxonMobil

EU scientific agency concludes DINP is not classifiable for reproductive effects. In February 2015, a proposal for the classification of DINP is submitted to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) by Denmark. It triggered a scientific debate on the proposal for classification.

Consequently, a complete re-analysis of the raw data on a key study in the dossier conducted by scientists at the Danish Technical University is made.

After 3 years work on the proposals from Denmark to classify DINP as a Category 1B Reproductive Agent, the Risk Assessment Committee (RAC) review process involved a rapporteur and co-rapporteur working in-depth on the Danish proposal one year before the decision was taken by the full committee. In March 2018, the ECHA RAC carried out a robust scientific weight of evidence evaluation taking into account all of the relevant data.
