2000 mg/kg bw
No. of animals per sex per dose:
6 females (3 per group)
Control animals:
no
Details on study design:
- Duration of observation period following administration: 14 days

The body weights were recorded on day 0 (just before the treatment), on day 7 and on day 15 with a precision of 1 g.
- Necropsy of survivors performed: yes
- Other examinations performed: clinical signs, external appearance, appearance of tissue and organs of cranial, thoracic and abdominal cavities
- Experimental design: The study was performed in two consecutive steps with three rats per step.

Key result
Sex:
female
Dose descriptor:
LD50
Effect level:
> 2 000 mg/kg bw
Based on:
test mat.
Mortality:
No death occurred at 2000 mg/kg bw single oral dose of the test item. All female rats in step 1 and step 2 survived until the end of the 14-day observation period.
Clinical signs:
No symptoms were observed throughout the 14-day post-treatment period at any groups of the female animals.
Body weight:
The mean body weight of the animals corresponded to their species and age throughout the study.
Gross pathology:
All animals survived until the scheduled necropsy on Day 15.
Severe hydrometra was detected in two animals of group 2 and in female of the group 1, as well. Hydrometra is physiological finding and connected to the cycle of the animal.
No further pathological changes were found during the macroscopic examination of animals.
Other findings:
- Organ weights: not applicable
- Histopathology: not applicable
- Potential target organs: none
- Other observations: none
Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The LD50 of the test item was determined to be above 2000 mg/kg body weight by oral route in the rat.
Executive summary:

A study according to OECD 423 was performed to assess the toxicity of test item when administered in a single dose to rats at one or more defined dose levels. The starting dose was selected on the basis of the available information about the test item and similar substances.

The acute toxic class method was carried out involving a stepwise procedure with the use of 2000 mg/kg bw as the starting dose in three female rats. No animal died in the first step at 2000 mg/kg bw dose level, so treatment with 2000 mg/kg bw was repeated on further three female rats. No animal died in the second step. Based on this the testing was terminated in accordance to the stopping criteria of Annex 2d of OECD Guideline No. 423.

Animals were weighed, observed for lethality and toxic symptoms for 14 days after the treatment. Gross pathological examination was carried out 15th day after the treatment in all animals.

No death occurred at 2000 mg/kg bw single oral dose of the test item. All female rats survived until the end of the 14-day observation period.

No symptoms were observed throughout the 14-day post-treatment period at any groups of the female animals.

The body weight development was undisturbed in all animals.

All organs of the animals treated with 2000 mg/kg bw proved to be free of treatment related gross pathological changes.

In conclusion, the LD50 of the test item was determined to be above 2000 mg/kg body weight by oral route in the rat.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Classification, Labelling, and Packaging Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008
The available experimental test data are reliable and suitable for classification purposes under Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008. Based on available data on acute toxicity, the test item does not require classification for acute toxicity via the oral route according to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP), as amended for the fifteenth time in Regulation (EU) No 2020/1182.
