Conclusions:
The test substance, m-diisopropylbenzene, is not sensitizing in guinea pigs
Executive summary:

The sensitization potential of m-diisopropylbenzene was assessed in guinea pigs using a Buehler test design. Following 3 weekly applications of a 100% test substance, animals were challenged 2 weeks later by application of a 100% test substance. There were no signs of sensitization in any of the test animals. Consequently, the test substance was determined to be non-sensitizing in guinea pigs.

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

The potential for m-Diisopropylbenzene (m-DIPB) to induce skin sensitization was assessed in two independent studies, which utilized either the Buehler method or a variation of the Magnusson Kligmann maximization method. In both studies, there was no evidence of skin sensitization observed, and therefore, m-DIPB does not satisfy the criteria for classification as a dermal irritant according to EU Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures (CLP) Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 or UN Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS).

Respiratory sensitisation

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no study available
Additional information:
Justification for selection of respiratory sensitisation endpoint:
inhalation is not considered to be a relevant route of potential human exposure

Justification for classification or non-classification
