Exposure controls / personal protection

This substance is handled under Strictly Controlled Conditions in accordance with REACH regulation Article 17(3) for on-site isolated intermediates and, in case the substance is transported to other sites for further processing, the substance should be handled at these sites under the Strictly Controlled Conditions as specified in REACH regulation Article 18(4). Site documentation to support safe handling arrangements including the selection of engineering, administrative and personal protective equipment controls in accordance with risk-based management systems is available at each manufacturing site.  

Written confirmation of application of Strictly Controlled Conditions has been received from every affected Distributor and Downstream Processor/User of the Registrant’s intermediate.
8.1 Control parameters
No control parameters known.
8.2 Exposure controls
Respiratory protection If product is handled while not enclosed, and if contact may occur:
Wear respirator with a particle filter mask (protection factor 4)
conforming to European norm EN149FFP1 or equivalent.
Respiratory protection should only be used to control residual risk of
short duration activities, when all reasonably practicable steps have
been taken to reduce exposure at source e.g. containment and/or
local extract ventilation. Always follow respirator manufacturer's
instructions regarding wearing and maintenance.
Hand protection Please observe the instructions regarding permeability and
breakthrough time which are provided by the supplier of the gloves.
Also take into consideration the specific local conditions under which
the product is used, such as the danger of cuts, abrasion, and the
contact time.
Wash gloves when contaminated. Dispose of when contaminated
inside, when perforated or when contamination on the outside cannot
be removed. Wash hands frequently and always before eating,
drinking, smoking or using the toilet.
Material Nitrile rubber
Rate of permeability > 480 min
Glove thickness > 0,4 mm
Protective index Class 6
Directive Protective gloves complying with EN
374.
Eye protection Wear goggles (conforming to EN166, Field of Use = 5 or equivalent)
and faceshield (conforming to EN166, Field of Use = 3 or
equivalent).
Skin and body protection Wear standard coveralls and Category 3 Type 4 suit.
If there is a risk of significant exposure, consider a higher protective
type suit.
Wear two layers of clothing wherever possible. Polyester/cotton or
cotton overalls should be worn under chemical protection suit and
should be professionally laundered frequently.
If chemical protection suit is splashed, sprayed or significantly
contaminated, decontaminate as far as possible, then carefully
remove and dispose of as advised by manufacturer.
