MEKO is labeled as Carcinogen Cat 2 (legal classification) through all routes of exposure (inhalation, digestion, skin contact). In 2013 MEKO was subject to ‘Substance Evaluation’ (under the lead of the German Authorities). The conclusion was that MEKO needed to go for further ‘Harmonized Classification & Labeling’. The German Authorities proposed a Carc. Cat. 1B labeling. Given the inhalation toxicity and given the volatility of MEKO, the exposure risk is high.
