Where appropriate, submit a proposal for a
specification (eg level of purity, nature and
percentage of impurities, type of polymer to be used
...) to be included in the Directive.
Set out any other information that may be relevant
Answer 'yes' or 'no'
If 'no' go to 1.3, if "yes" give information requested
in 1.2.1 to 1.2.13 as completely as possible.
This section only deals with "process mixtures",
obtained from a reproducible process and where the
detailed composition can be easily determined (e.g.
mixture of isomers).
"Synthetic mixtures", made up by intentionally of
individual identified components are not considered
in this section.

Give chemical name of mixture, if any.
Set out synonyms, if any.
Set out trade name(s), if any.
Set out CAS number (s), if any.

Give molecular weight (weight averaged molecular
mass) and molecular mass range.
Give spectroscopic data which allow identification of
the mixture, e.g. FTIR, UV, NMR and/or MS.

substances, production control and reproducibility of
If known, indicate any alternative production process
and product that can be used, and whether such
products have the same characteristics.
