Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: No guideline is required according to REACh TGD. Considering that the substance is well characterised and that the data come from a GLP study, full reliability applies.
Reason / purpose for cross-reference:
reference to same study
no guideline required
GLP compliance:
certificate not provided
