Conclusion on classification

It is important to point out that the substance being registered in this dossier is a sparingly soluble form of aluminium and not a soluble metal salt. Detailed Information on the classification of the soluble form (aluminum chloride) and on an evaluation of the transformation-dissolution tests that were performed with various sparingly soluble aluminum compounds is provided in the report “Background document – Environmental Effects Assessment of Aluminium” which is attached to Section 13 of the IUCLID Dossier. 

An overall conclusion on classification is presented below.

 

Available data indicate that aluminium salts are relatively non toxic and this was sufficient for the EU Classification and Labelling Committee to determine that there was no need for classification of aluminium chloride. Therefore it is also concluded that aluminium massive and sparingly soluble forms of aluminium are highly insoluble and non-hazardous. The sections above have provided data on a BLM model that can be used to assess potential for toxicity in a wide pH-range.
