Effect level:
> 5 000 mg/kg bw
Mortality:
Males: 5000 mg/kg bw.; number of animals 5; number of deaths 0
Females: 5000 mg/kg bw.; number of animals 5; number of deaths 0
Clinical signs:
The only sign of toxicity was soft stools in two females on the day of treatment.
Body weight:
All animals showed expected gains in bodyweight over the treatment period.
Gross pathology:
There were no effects observed.
Interpretation of results:
practically nontoxic
Remarks:
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: EU
Conclusions:
There were no deaths and no significant signs of reaction to treatment at the limit test dosage of 5000 mg/kg bw. The test substance is therefore considered to be practically non-toxic and is not classified according to CLP criteria.

Additional information

In an acute oral toxicity study in rats (Corning Hazleton Laboratories Ltd., 1993) the test substance was administered in corn oil to five male and five female Sprague Dawley rats at a dosage of 5,000 mg/kg/ bw, and observed for 14 days. There were no deaths, no clinical signs, no effects on bodyweight and no remarkable macropathological findings. .

In the key acute dermal toxicity study (Safepharm Laboratories Ltd, 1998), the test substance was applied under semi-occlusive bandages to the arachis oil moistened skin of five male and five female Sprague Dawley rats at a dosage of 2,000 mg/kg bw, and observed for 14 days. There were no deaths, no systemic or local signs, and no remarkable pathological findings.

In view of the very low acute oral and dermal toxicity and mild irritancy of the test substance, it is not expected to pose an acute inhalation hazard.


Justification for selection of acute toxicity – oral endpoint
Only one acute oral toxicity study is available.

Justification for selection of acute toxicity – inhalation endpoint
The conduct of an acute inhalation toxicity study is considered scientifically unjustified

Justification for selection of acute toxicity – dermal endpoint
The more recently undertaken of two good quality, GLP, acute dermal limit test studies conducted to Annex V test guidelines

Justification for classification or non-classification

The available animal test data are reliable and suitable for classification purposes under regulation 1272/2008. The substance is not therefore classified for single dose specific target organ toxicity under EU CLP criteria.
