Remarks:
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: EU

Under the test conditions, the oral LD50 is higher than 2000 mg/kg bw in rats, therefore the substance is not classified according to CLP Regulation (EC) No. 1272 /2008.
Executive summary:

Test Guidance

OECD Guideline 420 and EC Method B.1 bis (Acute Oral Toxicity - Fixed Dose Procedure)

Method and materials

Following a sighting study at the dose level of 2000 mg/kg bw, an addition 4 fasted female Wistar rats (RccHan™:WIST) were given a single oral (gavage) dose of the test material at 2000 mg/kg bw. Animals were then observed for mortality, clinical signs and bodyweights for 14 days and were all sacrificed for macroscopic examination.

Results

No mortality was observed. No signs of systemic toxicity were noted during the observation period. All animals showed expected gains in body weight over the observation period. No abnormalities were observed at necropsy. In this study, the oral LD50 of the test item was considered to be higher than 2000 mg/kg bw in female rats.

Conclusion

Under the test conditions, the oral meadian LD50 is higher than 2000 mg/kg bw in female rats, therefore the substance is not classified according to CLP Regulation (EC) No. 1272 /2008.

Interpretation of results:
not classified
Remarks:
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: EU
Conclusions:
Under the test conditions, the acute dermal LD50 is higher than 2000 mg/kg bw in rats therefore the substance is not classified according to CLP Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.
Executive summary:

Test Guidance

OECD Guideline 402 and EC Method B.3 (Acute Toxicity Dermal)

Method and materials

A group of ten Wistar (RccHanTM:WIST) rats (5 males and 5 females) were given a single dermal application of test item at 2000 mg/kg bw. The test item was placed directly on back and flanks of the skin representing approximately 10 % of the total body surface of the animals. The test site was then covered by a semi-occlusive dressing for 24 h. Animals were then observed for mortality, clinical signs and bodyweights for 14 days.

Results

No mortality and no clinical signs were observed during the study. There were no signs of dermal irritation. All animals showed expected gains in body weight over the observation period. No macroscopic abnormalities were observed at necropsy. The combined dermal LD50 was considered to be higher than 2000 mg/kg bw in rats.

Conclusion

Under the test conditions, the acute median dermal LD50 is higher than 2000 mg/kg bw in rats therefore it is not classified according to CLP Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no adverse effect observed

Additional information

Oral

In a key study performed in accordance with OECD Guideline 420 and EC Method B.1 bis (Acute Oral Toxicity - Fixed Dose Procedure), following a sighting study at the dose level of 2000 mg/kg bw, an addition 4 fasted female Wistar rats (RccHan™:WIST) were given a single oral (gavage) dose of the test material at 2000 mg/kg bw. Animals were then observed for mortality, clinical signs and bodyweights for 14 days and were all sacrificed for macroscopic examination.

No mortality was observed. No signs of systemic toxicity were noted during the observation period. All animals showed expected gains in body weight over the observation period. No abnormalities were observed at necropsy. In this study, the oral LD50 of the test item was considered to be higher than 2000 mg/kg bw in female rats.

Under the test conditions, the oral median LD50 is higher than 2000 mg/kg bw in female rats, therefore the substance is not classified according to CLP Regulation (EC) No. 1272 /2008.

Dermal

In an OECD Guideline 402 and EC Method B.3 (Acute Toxicity Dermal) study a group of ten Wistar (RccHanTM:WIST) rats (5 males and 5 females) were given a single dermal application of test item at 2000 mg/kg bw. The test item was placed directly on back and flanks of the skin representing approximately 10 % of the total body surface of the animals. The test site was then covered by a semi-occlusive dressing for 24 h. Animals were then observed for mortality, clinical signs and bodyweights for 14 days.

No mortality and no clinical signs were observed during the study. There were no signs of dermal irritation. All animals showed expected gains in body weight over the observation period. No macroscopic abnormalities were observed at necropsy. The combined dermal LD50 was considered to be higher than 2000 mg/kg bw in rats.

Under the test conditions, the acute median dermal LD50 is higher than 2000 mg/kg bw in rats therefore it is not classified according to CLP Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.

Justification for classification or non-classification

No toxicity is oberved in both the acute oral and dermal toxicity studies in the rat. The acute median LD50 for both the oral and dermal routes is higher than 2000 mg/kg bw in rats therefore it is not classified for acute toxicity according to CLP Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.
