In its judgment, the General Court ruled that the Commission made a manifest error in its assessment of the reliability and acceptability of the study on which the classification was based, and incorrectly applied the classification criteria as laid down by the CLP Regulation to a substance that has the intrinsic property to cause cancer (CJEU Press Release No. 190/22 and Judgement of the General Court (Joined Cases T 279/20 and T 288/20 and in Case T 283/20, CWS Powder Coatings and others V Commission).
