A key SIEF activity is to agree upon Classification & Labelling, prior to submission of the technical dossier to ECHA by the Lead Registrant.

At the end of July/Early August 2010 each SIEF was sent the Classification & Labelling proposal - see attached summary  of the SIEF-agreed classifications.

Furthermore, a separate document was provided to explain the self-classification of RMC as a result of the hazard identification/assessment phase of the REACH process:
