Highest indicative risk is low risk – chemical identity

Guide to completing the ‘Chemical identity’ section of the pre-introduction report for ‘highest indicative risk is low risk and the other types do not apply’.

What is the proper name of the industrial chemical?

You, or someone else, must provide a CAS name or IUPAC name for your chemical.

Do not enter an INCI name, trade name or marketing name

Is a Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) registry number assigned for the industrial chemical?

Select ‘Yes’ if your chemical has been assigned a number by CAS. You must enter a valid CAS number, either with or without the hyphens, otherwise the following error message will appear “CAS registry number must be a valid CAS Number. E.g. 12-34-0 or 12340”.

Select ‘No’ if your chemical has not been assigned a CAS registry number.

What is the name (or synonym) you use to refer to the industrial chemical?

Enter the names that you use to refer to the chemical, for example an INCI name.

Is the industrial chemical a UVCB substance (a substance of Unknown or Variable composition, Complex reaction products or Biological materials)?

Select ‘Yes’ if your chemical is a UVCB substance. You (or the person who knows this information), must describe the UVCB substance by including at least one of the following:

  • the manufacturing process for the UVCB substance
  • raw material sources of the UVCB substance
  • carbon number ranges for the UVCB substance
  • physical property ranges for the UVCB substance
  • biological sources of the UVCB substance
UVCB description is mandatory for introductions in human health exposure band 4, or environment exposure band 3 or 4. If this does not apply to your introduction, you can enter “not applicable”.

Is the industrial chemical a high molecular weight polymer?

Select ‘Yes’ if your chemical is a polymer with a number average molecular weight that is greater than or equal to 1,000 g/mol, then answer the questions about the polymer molecular weight as requested in the form.

Polymer weight details are mandatory for introductions in human health exposure band 4. If this does not apply to your introduction, you can enter “not applicable”.
