Key value for chemical safety assessment

Skin sensitisation

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no adverse effect observed (not sensitising)
Additional information:

There was no available data for skin sensitisation for pentadecanol, branched and linear. Therefore, key information from a structurally related compound was read across for hazard decisions. For this purpose, data from tetradecanol was used.

Migrated from Short description of key information:
The key study for skin sensitisation was read across from a guideline study in guinea pig in tetradecanol (CAS 112-72-1). The study reports the test substance not to be sensitising (Iihama 1997; rel 1).

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the available information read across from a structural analogue, it is proposed here that 1 -pentadecanol does not require classification or labelling for sensitisation in accordance to current EU requirements.
