Conclusions:
Interpretation of results: negative

The test to assess the genotoxicity of the test material was negative. This finding does not warrant the classification of this test material as a genotoxin under the new Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 on classification, labeling and packaging of substances and mixtures (CLP) or under Directive 67/518/EEC for dangerous substances and Directive 1999/45/EC for preparations.
Executive summary:

This data is being read across from the source study that tested Hydrocarbons, C10-C12, isoalkanes,, <2% aromatics based on analogue read across.

No treatments of any of the test strains, either in the absence or in the presence of S-9, resulted in a statistically significant increase in revertant numbers. This study was therefore considered to have provided no indication of any test material mutagenic activity. This finding does not warrant the classification of this test material as a genotoxin under the new Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 on classification, labeling and packaging of substances and mixtures (CLP) or under Directive 67/518/EEC for dangerous substances and Directive 1999/45/EC for preparations.
