Description of key information

No valid study for Carcinogenicity of zinc ethylphenyldithiocarbamate is available. A Russian publication (Khoroshilova et al., Kauch. Rezina., 10, 54 -55 (1980) is disregarded due to significant methodological deficiencies and insufficient reporting.

For zinc ethylphenyldithiocarbamate a potential chemical reaction to the carcinogenic ethylphenylnitrosamine can not be excluded with nitrosating agents. It can not be excluded that technical products can be contaminated with the respective nitrosamines (Toxicological evaluations of the BG Chemie for zinc ethylphenyldithiocarbamate No. 219 in German).

For N-nitrosamines the 'Technical Rule for Hazardous Substances' (TRGS 552) of the German Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA) applies which indicate that a potential chemical reaction to the carcinogenic ethylphenylnitrosamine can not be excluded. The information and protective measures should be regarded.

Justification for classification or non-classification

No valid study for Carcinogenicity of zinc ethylphenyldithiocarbamate is available. According to CLP classification criteria (Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008) a classification is not justified.

For N-nitrosamines the ‘Technical Rule for Hazardous Substances’ (TRGS 552) of the German Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA) applies which indicate that a potential chemical reaction to the carcinogenic ethylphenylnitrosamine can not be excluded. The information and protective measures should be regarded.
