Justification for classification or non-classification

Diphosphorus pentaoxide does not have to be classified for carcinogenicity according to the criteria laid down in the EU Dangerous Substances Directive (67/548/EEC) and in the EU Classification Labelling and Packaging Regulation (1272/2008/EC) because it is suppoed to have no genotoxic properties and carcinogenicity testing was considered not scientifically necessary.

Furthermore, toxic effects are restricted to local irritations due to the corrosive properties of the substance.
