According to Dutch legislation emission (waste) of chemicals from this list has to be minimized, which means that we have to strive the absolute minimal use of these specific chemicals.
Note that the explanation and the list itself is only available in Dutch. The Cas-numbers are however also provided.
These 9 chemicals are the so-called CMR chemicals; they are carcinogenic, mutagenic and/or reproduction toxic. Please be aware that it is not allowed to work with these chemicals unless you can show that there is no alternative available (costs are no argument here).
