The following remark is added for 1,4-dioxane:
“The combined intrinsic properties which demonstrate scientific evidence of probable serious effects to human health and the environment and which give rise to an equivalent level of concern are the following: very high persistence, high mobility in water, potential for being transported in the water phase over long distances, difficulty of remediation and water purification. The observed probable serious effects for human health and the environment are carcinogenicity and yet unknown environmental effects. Together, these elements lead to a very high potential for irreversible effects.”
