Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The LD50 of the substance is > 2000 mg/kg bw
Executive summary:

In an acute toxic class test female rats were exposed to 2000 mg/kg bw of the substance. No mortality, systemic clinical signs, effects on body weight and macroscopic findings were reported. Blue staining of ears, eyes, tail, feet and snout as well as of the kidney was observed. The LD50 is > 2000 mg/kg bw
