Genetic toxicity in vitro

Description of key information

No genetic toxicity study with zinc dipropionate is available, thus the genetic toxicity will be addressed with existing data on its two individual moieties zinc and propionate.

Zinc dipropionate is not expected to be genotoxic, since its two moieties zinc and propionate have not shown a genotoxic activity.

Please refer to the section for the respective assessment entity for data on the moieties.

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no adverse effect observed (negative)

Additional information

Zinc dipropionate is not expected to be genotoxic, since its two moieties zinc and propionate have not shown a genotoxic activity. Further testing is not required. For further information on the toxicity of the individual moieties, please refer to the relevant sections in the IUCLID and CSR.

Justification for classification or non-classification

As the two moieties of zinc dipropionate do not have a genotoxic activity, zinc dipropionate in all probability has also no potential to induce genotoxic effects.

According to the criteria of REGULATION (EC) No 1272/2008 and its subsequent adaptions, zinc dipropionate does not have to be classified and has no obligatory labelling requirement for germ cell mutagenicity.
