(c) the classification of the intermediate as specified in Section 4 of Annex VI;
(d) any available existing information on physicochemical, human health or environmental properties of the intermediate. Where a full study report is available, a study summary shall be submitted;

(f) information on risk management measures applied and recommended to the user in accordance with paragraph 4.
Except in cases covered under Article 25(3), Article 27(6) or Article 30(3), the registrant shall be in legitimate possession of or have permission to refer to the full study report summarised under (d) for the purpose of registration.

(a) the substance is rigorously contained by technical means during its whole lifecycle including manufacture, purification, cleaning and maintenance of equipment, sampling, analysis, loading and unloading of equipment or vessels, waste disposal or purification and storage;
(b) procedural and control technologies shall be used that minimise emission and any resulting exposure;
(c) only properly trained and authorised personnel handle the substance;
(d) in the case of cleaning and maintenance works, special procedures such as purging and washing are applied before the system is opened and entered;
(e) in cases of accident and where waste is generated, procedural and/or control technologies are used to minimise emissions and the resulting exposure during purification or cleaning and maintenance procedures;
(f) substance-handling procedures are well documented and strictly supervised by the site operator.
