Carc and Muta Directive, Annex I - Substances, Mixtures & Processes

This list contains a non-exhaustive inventory of substances based on Art. 2 carcinogen and mutagen (CM) definitions and Annex I of the Carcinogens and Mutagens Directive. Category 1A and 1B carcinogens and mutagens are derived from the CLP Regulation's Table 3 of Annex VI (1272/2008/EC). Employers are obligated to minimize worker exposure to these agents as far as possible, and must arrange for medical surveillance of workers exposed to these substances.

Gas oils (petroleum), heavy vacuum; Heavy Fuel oil

A complex combination of hydrocarbons produced by the vacuum distillation of the residuum from atmospheric distillation of crude oil. It consists of hydrocarbons having carbon numbers predominantly in the range of C20 through C50 and boiling in the range of approximately 350°C to 600°C (662°F to 1112°F). This stream is likely to contain 5 wt. % or more of 4- to 6-membered condensed ring aromatic hydrocarbons. EC / List no: 265-058-3 CAS no: 64741-57-7
