Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

* Values in the lower limit column represent the doses associated with the indicated level of effect under a more pessimistic assumption about the degree of interindividual variability in susceptibility of the human population (log probit slop 1). Values in the best estimate column represent calculations using the investigators' "best-estimate" assumption of the degree of interindividual variability in susceptibility for the quantal effects (log probit slop 2).
