Key value for chemical safety assessment

Skin irritation / corrosion

Link to relevant study records
Reference
Endpoint:
skin corrosion: in vitro / ex vivo
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a strong acid (pH ≤ 2.0) or base (pH ≥ 11.5) and the available information indicates that it should be classified as skin corrosion (Category 1, 1A, 1B or 1C)
Interpretation of results:
corrosive
Remarks:
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: OECD GHS
Conclusions:
Boron trichloride is corrosive to skin.
Executive summary:

Boron trichloride is corrosive to skin, which is derived from the actual classification in the CLP regulation and also from the degradation category approach applied, by transcribing the results of hydrochloric acid and boric acid to boron trichloride.

The description and justification of the category approach is presented in Section 13.

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no study available

Eye irritation

Link to relevant study records
Reference
Endpoint:
eye irritation: in vitro / ex vivo
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is classified as skin corrosion, leading to classification as serious eye damage (Category 1)
Interpretation of results:
highly irritating
Remarks:
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: OECD GHS
Conclusions:
Boron trichloride is highly irritant to the eye.
Executive summary:

Boron trichloride is highly irritant to the eye, which is derived from the actual classification in the CLP regulation and also from the degradation category approach applied, by transcribing the results of hydrochloric acid and boric acid to boron trichloride.

The description and justification of the category approach is presented in Section 13.

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no study available

Respiratory irritation

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no study available

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

BCl3 is classified as Skin Corr. 1B, H314, and as EUH014 in the Annex VI of the CLP regulation.
