Workers - Hazard via inhalation route

Systemic effects

Long term exposure
Hazard assessment conclusion:
no hazard identified
Route of original study:
By inhalation
Acute/short term exposure
Hazard assessment conclusion:
no hazard identified
Route of original study:
By inhalation
DNEL related information

Local effects

Long term exposure
Hazard assessment conclusion:
DNEL (Derived No Effect Level)
Value:
17.3 mg/m³
Most sensitive endpoint:
irritation (respiratory tract)
DNEL related information
DNEL derivation method:
ECHA REACH Guidance
Overall assessment factor (AF):
5
Dose descriptor:
NOAEC
AF for dose response relationship:
1
Justification:
This factor is applied because the dose-descriptor starting point is a NOAEC.
AF for differences in duration of exposure:
1
Justification:
Local effects on the respiratory tract are related to the deposited dose per unit of surface area. Below a certain concentration the clearance capacity of the lungs is not overwhelmed and the lungs retain the ability to clear the deposited substance. Therefore, time scaling is not appropriate as the lung effects are mainly driven by the exposure concentration.
AF for interspecies differences (allometric scaling):
1
Justification:
AF not used for inhalation.
AF for other interspecies differences:
1
Justification:
No additional assessment factor is added for interspecies extrapolation from rodent to human, since the respiratory rate of rats (0.29 m3/kg-day according to Pauluhn (2010)) leads to a greater lung tract burden compared to humans (0.14 m3/kg-day), thus the effects observed in rats are exaggerated and provide a “built in” safety margin. 
AF for intraspecies differences:
5
Justification:
A factor of 5 is applied for worker DNELs.
AF for the quality of the whole database:
1
Justification:
The key study is considered as a reliable study with a klimisch score of 1 and the database is complete and robust.
AF for remaining uncertainties:
1
Justification:
No other assessment factor is applied.
