The 12 BImSchV (essentially germany implementation of the Seveso III directive, as far as I understand) defines certain industrial or other plants as hazardous, according to the substances stored there. This attachment lists the substances and substance categories. Ethanol (alcohol) is absent, even when using many alternative names. What is the appropriate category for alcohol?
The most likely categories are flammable liquids, 184.108.40.206 to 220.127.116.11 (the tresholds are vastly different!), however I can't tell which specific one. Categories 1.1 (toxic fluids) are also, or additionally, possible. What is it?
Update upon further search:
- it appears the entries in the table linked above reference EU 1272/2008, Annex VI where ethanol is listed as "Flam. liq. 2" (along "acute tox. 3), so ethanol would be an "entzündbare Flüssigkeiten der Kategorie 2" - correct?
- EU 1272/2008 has been changed by, so far at least, 17 ATP, these usually change, add or remove some of the entries in the annexes. Is there a collated version of the annexes aof EU 1272/2008 taking into account all ATP? Is there a quick way to find all ATP referring to EU 1272/2008?
