Materials and methods

Principles of method if other than guideline:
The PC data for the EU Risk Assessment Report on Monochloroacetic Acid (MCAA) are mainly derived from CRC (1995), Hoest AG (1982, 193a/b, 1997 a/b), KEMI (1994) and ECETOC (1999). Tests according to OECD or EU guidelines were not available. However, the data available were considered suitable for evaluation.
GLP compliance:
