Description of key information

Although Column 2 of REACH Annex X requires a carcinogenicity study (required in Section 8.9.1) if the substance has a wide dispersive use, the weight of evidence across the category suggests that pentadecanol, branched and linear is not carcinogenic. This is based on a large set of various types of repeated dose studies across the category which do not offer any evidence of treatment-related induction of hyperplasia / pre-neoplastic lesions for pentadecanol, branched and linear or structurally related alcohols (though reporting is limited in many cases). In addition, pentadecanol, branched and linear does not have any genotoxic effects.
