Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
Category 5 based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
The oral LD50 on rats was 4190 to 11260 mg/kg bw, and was classified as Category 5 according ly GHS criteria.
Executive summary:

As the target substance hydrolyses rapidly (half-life < 30 minutes) the intrinsic properties are related to hydrolysis products of the target substance. This information is used as a supporting evidence on the toxicity of the target substance in CSA.
