Administrative data

Endpoint:
acute toxicity: dermal
Type of information:
migrated information: read-across from supporting substance (structural analogue or surrogate)
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: see 'Remark'
Remarks:
GLP - Guideline study. According to the ECHA guidance document "Practical guide 6: How to report read-across and categories (March 2010)", the reliability was changed from RL1 to RL2 to reflect the fact that this study was conducted on a read-across substance.

Results and discussion

Effect levels
Sex:
male/female
Dose descriptor:
LD50
Effect level:
> 2 000 mg/kg bw
Based on:
test mat.
Remarks on result:
other: no mortality
Mortality:
No mortality occurred.
Clinical signs:
No systemic signs were observed in the animals during the entire observation period.
Skin observations: males/females: scales (back) (10/10); general erythema (back) (3/10); males: erythema focal (back) (3/5). All animals had recovered from the local signs after 7 observation days.
Body weight:
Mean body weight (g): days 1, 8, 15
- males: 236.2, 265.2, 294.8
- females: 207.3, 214.0, 217.8
Gross pathology:
No abnormalities detected.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
not classified
Remarks:
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: EU
Conclusions:
Based on the results of the acute dermal toxicity study in rats (limit test), the dermal LD50 is > 2000 mg/kg bw and, thus, classification for acute dermal toxicity is not warranted.
