Effect level:
> 2 000 mg/kg bw
Based on:
test mat.
Remarks on result:
not determinable due to absence of adverse toxic effects
Mortality:
All rats survived the observation period.
Clinical signs:
No signs of toxicity were detected in the 3 male and 3 female rats after treatment with 2000 mg/kg.
Body weight:
Body weight development of the treated rats was inconspicuous.
Gross pathology:
The gross pathological examination revealed no organ alterations.
Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
Based on the result of this study, it is concluded that the test material has no acute toxic potential and that the LD50 value is higher than 2000 mg/kg after oral treatment in rats.
Executive summary:

The test material was tested for acute toxicity according to OECD TG 423 in rats after oral administration of 2000 mg/kg body weight. Directly before administration the test material was prepared with aqueous Methocel® K4M Premium solution as the vehicle. This study was performed according to the "Acute toxic class method" (ATC).

No signs of toxicity were detected in the rats (3 males and 3 females) after treatment with 2000 mg/kg. There were no deaths during the course of the study.

Additional information

Oral

There is no study for acute toxicity available for the test substance.

However, the structural analogue substance was tested for acute toxicity according to OECD TG 423 in rats after oral administration of 2000 mg/kg body weight. Directly before administration the test material was prepared with aqueous Methocel® K4M Premium solution as the vehicle. This study was performed according to the "Acute toxic class method" (ATC).

No signs of toxicity were detected in the rats (3 males and 3 females) after treatment with 2000 mg/kg bw. There were no deaths during the course of the study. The gross pathological examination revealed no organ alterations. Based on the result of this study, it is concluded that the substance has no acute toxic potential and that the LD50 value is higher than 2000 mg/kg bwafter oral treatment in rats (reference 7.2.1 -1).

Justification for classification or non-classification

Classification, Labeling, and Packaging Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008

The available data for acute oral toxicity are reliable and suitable for classification purposes under Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008. Based on this data, the substance is not classified for acute toxicity under Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP), as amended for the twelfth time in Regulation (EU) 2019/521.
