Administrative data

Description of key information

Irritation/corrosion tests are being waived as extreme toxicity of substance would prove lethal to the test subjects before skin eye or respiritory irritation/corrosion could occur

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Skin irritation / corrosion

Link to relevant study records
Reference
Endpoint:
skin corrosion: in vitro / ex vivo
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is classified as acute toxicity by the dermal route (Category 1)
Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no study available

Eye irritation

Respiratory irritation

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no study available

Additional information

The substance is classified as very toxic (T+) by ingestion, inhalation and absorption through the skin. As per Column 2 of Annex VII of REACH, no in vitro testing will be completed to quantify the skin, eye or respiratory irritation effect. 

Extreme toxicity of substance would prove lethal to the test subjects before skin, eye or respiratory irritation/corrosion could occur.

Justification for classification or non-classification

There are no irritation/corrosion studies available for TEL. However, the substance is classified in Annex I of the EU DSD as very toxic (T+) by ingestion, inhalation and absorption through the skin, and would be classified as acutely toxic by all routes of exposure according to EU regulations
