Administrative data

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

From the available negative data for mutagenicity in vitro and in vivo it can be concluded that nitrobenzene is not suspected to exert mutagenic effects in germ cell. Nitrobenzene should therefore not be classified as a mutagen

Short description of key information:
A number of Ames, Chrom Abs, Micronucleus, HPRT and UDS assays

Endpoint Conclusion: No adverse effect observed (negative)

Justification for classification or non-classification

Results for genotoxicity are negative therefore no classification is required
