tolerance included)
4A
R = not detectable (detection limit = 10
ppb).
Remark for Commission:
* No method of analysis is available for the
enforcement of an SML.
* The substance hydrolyses readily at
neutral pH and above and so it will be
unstable in many foods. The substance is
stable in simulant B and will not hydrolyse
in simulant D.

QMA: 20 ug/6 dmē.
Remark for Commission:
- Including the epoxide hydrolysis products
is not needed if the restriction is on a QM
basis.
- If a future application is made for a higher
restriction level, which could then permit
use as an additive in PVC organosols, then
chlorohydrin formation would need to be
considered.
