Dreist and Kolb (1993) studied skin sensitisation in female Bor:DHPW
guinea pigs according to OECD Guideline 406 (guinea pig maximisation
test). This study was reliable and is selected as key study. No other
data on skin sensitisation were available.
The results of the study demonstrate that biphenyl is not a skin
Biphenyl is a solid with a low vapour pressure and is not a skin
sensitiser. As such it is concluded that it is highly unlikely it would
be a respiratory sensitiser.
According to the available data and according to the CLP Regulation,
biphenyl should not be classified for skin sensitisation.
No data were available on respiratory sensitisation.
