WORK HEALTH AND SAFETY REGULATION 2017 - SCHEDULE 6

SCHEDULE 6 – Classification of mixtures

1 Purpose of this Schedule

The tables in this Schedule replace some of the tables in the GHS.

Note : See the definition of
"GHS" in clause 5(1).

Table 6.1 Classification of mixtures containing respiratory or skin sensitisers

Cut-off values/concentration limits of ingredients of a mixture classified as either a respiratory sensitiser or a skin sensitiser that would trigger classification of the mixture.

Item Ingredient classification Mixture classification
Skin sensitiser Category 1 Respiratory sensitiser Category 1
All physical states Solid/liquid Gas
1 Skin sensitiser Category 1 ≥ 1.0%
2 Skin sensitiser Sub-category 1A ≥ 0.1%
3 Skin sensitiser Sub-category 1B ≥ 1.0%
4 Respiratory sensitiser Category 1 ≥ 1.0% ≥ 0.2%
5 Respiratory sensitiser Sub-category 1A ≥ 0.1% ≥ 0.1%
6 Respiratory sensitiser Sub-category 1B ≥ 1.0% ≥ 0.2%
Note : Table 6.1 replaces table 3.4.5 in the GHS, p 151.

Table 6.2 Classification of mixtures containing carcinogens

Cut-off values/concentration limits of ingredients of a mixture classified as a carcinogen that would trigger classification of the mixture.

Item Ingredient classification Mixture classification
Category 1 carcinogen Category 2 carcinogen
1 Category 1 carcinogen ≥ 0.1%
2 Category 2 carcinogen ≥ 1.0%
Notes :
1 The concentration limits in Table 6.2 apply to solids and liquids (w/w units) and gases (v/v units).
2 Table 6.2 replaces table 3.6.1 in the GHS, p 166.

Table 6.3 Classification of mixtures containing reproductive toxicants

Cut-off values/concentration limits of ingredients of a mixture classified as a reproductive toxicant or for effects on or via lactation that would trigger classification of the mixture.

Item Ingredient classification Mixture classification
Category 1 reproductive toxicant Category 2 reproductive toxicant Additional category for effects on or via lactation
1 Category 1 reproductive toxicant ≥ 0.3%
2 Category 2 reproductive toxicant ≥ 3.0%
3 Additional category for effects on or via lactation ≥ 0.3%
Notes :
1 The concentration limits in Table 6.3 apply to solids and liquids (w/w units) and gases (v/v units).
2 Table 6.3 replaces table 3.7.1 in the GHS, p 180.

Table 6.4 Classification of mixtures containing specific target organ toxicants (single exposure)

Cut-off values/concentration limits of ingredients of a mixture classified as a specific target organ toxicant that would trigger classification of the mixture.

Item Ingredient classification Mixture classification
Category 1 Category 2
1 Category 1 specific target organ toxicant Concentration ≥ 10% ≤ 1.0% concentration < 10%
2 Category 2 specific target organ toxicant Concentration ≥ 10%
Notes :
1 The concentration limits in Table 6.4 apply to solids and liquids (w/w units) and gases (v/v units).
2 Table 6.4 replaces table 3.8.2 in the GHS, p 192.

Table 6.5 Classification of mixtures containing specific target organ toxicants (repeated exposure)

Cut-off values/concentration limits of ingredients of a mixture classified as a specific target organ toxicant that would trigger classification of the mixture.

Item Ingredient classification Mixture classification
Category 1 Category 2
1 Category 1 specific target organ toxicant Concentration ≥ 10% ≤ 1.0% concentration < 10%
2 Category 2 specific target organ toxicant Concentration ≥ 10%
Notes :
1 The concentration limits in Table 6.5 apply to solids and liquids (w/w units) and gases (v/v units).
2 Table 6.5 replaces table 3.9.3 in the GHS, p 203.
