Key value for chemical safety assessment

Skin sensitisation

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no study available
Additional information:

There are no animal or human data available with regard to the skin sensitisation potential of methyl vinyl ether. In accordance with Section 2 of REACH Annex XI a sensitisation study does not need to be conducted because of the very high volatility and immediate vaporization of methyl vinyl ether at room temperature (boiling point 6°C at 1013 hPa).

Justification for classification or non-classification

There are no animal or human data available with regard to the skin sensitising potential of methyl vinyl ether. In accordance with Section 2 of REACH Annex XI a sensitisation study does not need to be conducted because of the very high volatility and immediate vaporization of methyl vinyl ether at room temperature (boiling point 6°C at 1013 hPa). Therefore, classification for sensitisation is not warranted according to the criteria of EU Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures (CLP) Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.
