Workers - Hazard via inhalation route

Systemic effects

Long term exposure
Hazard assessment conclusion:
DNEL (Derived No Effect Level)
Value:
0.822 mg/m³
Most sensitive endpoint:
repeated dose toxicity
Route of original study:
Oral
DNEL related information
DNEL derivation method:
ECHA REACH Guidance
Overall assessment factor (AF):
75
Dose descriptor starting point:
NOAEL
Value:
50 mg/kg bw/day
Modified dose descriptor starting point:
NOAEC
Value:
61.7 mg/m³
Explanation for the modification of the dose descriptor starting point:

NOAECcorr = NOAELoral*(1/0.38 m³/kg bw/day)*(ABSoral-rat/ABSinh-human)*(6.7 m³ (8h)/10 m³ (8h))*(7 days exposure/ 5 days exposure) = 50 mg/kg bw/day*(1/0.38 m³/kg bw/day)*(1/2)*0.67*1.4 = 61.7 mg/m³.

As worst case as recommended in the ECHA Guidance R.8 (2012), it is assumed that oral absorption rate is 50% of that of inhalation absorption. ABS(oral/rat) = oral absorption rate in rats, ABS(inh./human) = inhalation absorption rate in humans.

AF for dose response relationship:
1
Justification:
The dose descriptor starting point is based on a NOAEL.

Workers - Hazard via dermal route

Systemic effects

Long term exposure
Hazard assessment conclusion:
DNEL (Derived No Effect Level)
Value:
2.33 mg/kg bw/day
Most sensitive endpoint:
repeated dose toxicity
Route of original study:
Oral
DNEL related information
DNEL derivation method:
ECHA REACH Guidance
Overall assessment factor (AF):
300
Dose descriptor starting point:
NOAEL
Value:
50 mg/kg bw/day
Modified dose descriptor starting point:
NOAEL
Value:
700 mg/kg bw/day
Explanation for the modification of the dose descriptor starting point:

Dermal NOAEL = oral NOAEL*ABS(oral)/ABS(dermal)*(7 days exposure/ 5 days exposure) = 50 mg/kg bw/day *(1/0.1)*1.4 = 700 mg/kg bw/day.

In accordance to Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment Chapter R.7c: Endpoint specific guidance (ECHA, 2017) a value of 10% skin absorption is chosen, since the molecular mass of the substance is above 500 and log Pow is outside the range [-1, 4]. QSAR prediction and the available dermal toxicity study support the very low absorption of the substance via the dermal route. For more details please refer to the endpoint basic toxicokinetics.
