CAS number: -
Hydrocarbons, C16-C22, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, <2% aromatics is not
hazardous for human health with respect to skin irritation, eye
irritation, acute toxicity (lethality or specific target organ toxicity
following a single exposure), sensitisation, specific target organ
toxicity following repeated exposures, reproductive toxicity,
developmental toxicity, carcinogenicity and genetic toxicity.
The critical health effects are aspiration hazard (potential lung damage
following accidental swallowing) and potential skin dryness or cracking
following repeated dermal exposures. It is not possible to determine
quantitative dose descriptors for these effects.
In the absence of adverse effects in acute and long-term systemic and
reproductive studies it is not possible to determine DNEL values for
systemic effects and risk characterisation is not necessary.
Qualitative risk characterisation is required based on the aspiration
hazard and potential skin dryness and cracking.
There were no adverse effects relevant for
human hazard assessment up to the highest dose tested in the available
studies for systemic effects. It is therefore not appropriate to
quantify Derived No Effect Levels for humans, in accordance with the
draft update to Chapter B.8 of REACH Technical Guidance: Guidance on
information requirements and hazard assessment Part B.
