62. A pure substance or tested mixture falls into Subdivision B of Division 2 of Class D — Poisonous and Infectious Material if evidence of mutagenicity in mammalian somatic cells in vivo is obtained in a test to assess either gene mutation or chromosomal aberration carried out
(a) in accordance with test methods described in the “Introduction to the OECD Guidelines on Genetic Toxicology Testing and Guidance on the Selection and Application of Assays” published in the Third Addendum to the OECD Guidelines for Testing of Chemicals, dated March 1, 1987; and
(b) using testing strategies described in the Guidelines on the Use of Mutagenicity Tests in the Toxicological Evaluation of Chemicals, dated 1986, published by authority of the Minister of Health and the Minister of the Environment.

(f) it is an untested mixture containing a product, material or substance that meets the criteria referred to in paragraph (b) or (e) and is present at a concentration of at least one per cent.
Class F — Dangerously Reactive Material
66. A product, material or substance shall be included in Class F — Dangerously Reactive Material listed in Schedule II to the Act if it
(a) undergoes vigorous polymerization, decomposition or condensation;
(b) becomes self-reactive under conditions of shock or increase in pressure or temperature; or
(c) reacts vigorously with water to release a gas that has an LC50 not exceeding 2,500 parts per million by volume of gas, when tested for four hours in accordance with OECD Test Guideline No. 403, “Acute Inhalation Toxicity”, dated May 12, 1981.
