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.
