Description of key information

Additional information

It is generally accepted, that the principal toxic component of various cobalt salts is cobalt (dependent on the corresponding anion) (see also: CICAD 69). Therefore toxicity values for cobalt compounds (such as: cobalt salts), where the major toxic component is cobalt, can be considered as equivalent. Consequently, data from other cobalt salts or- compounds have been used to fill data gaps within this dossier.
