I have decided to confirm the interim decision to Schedule cyclosilazanes, di-Me, Me hydrogen, polymers with di-Me, Me hydrogen silazanes, reaction products with 3-(triethoxysilyl)-1-propanamine in Schedules 7 and 6 of the Poisons Standard and create new Appendix E and Appendix F listings. The scheduling entry should include the CAS number (475645-84-2) for additional clarity.
