GPS Product Safety Summary

USES AND APPLICATIONS

Colouring agent for paints, plastics and inks, used in industrial applications and consumer products

EXPOSURE

Human Health : Exposure of personnel in manufacturing facilities is considered low. Manufacturing process,

storage and handling operations are under industrial hygiene considerations and occupational safety

measures. Workers who might accidentally come in contact with the substance should follow the safety and

first-aid measures recommend in the safety data sheet.

As the substance is not to be classified as dangerous according to regulation (EC) no 1272/2008 (CLP-

Regulation) no human exposure assessment and risk characterisation has to be performed.

Environment: As the substance has neither to be classified as dangerous according to regulation (EC) no

1272/2008 (CLP-Regulation) nor is assessed to be PBT or vPvB substance, no environmental exposure

assessment and risk characterisation has to be performed.

RISK MANAGEMENT RECOMMENDATIONS

The substance has not to be classified as dangerous according to regulation (EC) no 1272/2008 (CLP-

Regulation)

Always apply technical measures and use personal protective equipment as recommended in the safety data

sheet to minimize exposure. Observe the usual industrial hygiene measures. Remove soiled or soaked clothing

immediately. Wash hands before break and after work.
