Key value for chemical safety assessment

Skin sensitisation

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no adverse effect observed (not sensitising)
Additional information:

In a reasonably well reported study that broadly followed the OECD guideline requirements for sensitisation testing and followed the Magnusson and Kligman maximisation protocol, there was no evidence of any sensitisation reactions seen in any of the animals tested. It can be concluded that 2 -methoxyethanol does not exhibit any sensitising properties.


Migrated from Short description of key information:
Zissu: Not sensitising to skin

Respiratory sensitisation

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no adverse effect observed (not sensitising)
Additional information:

No data available

Justification for classification or non-classification

No sensitisation reactions were seen in the single skin sensitisation study available. There is no data available on respiratory irritancy, but there is no data from other studies which would suggest any potential concerns.
