Justification for data waiving:
Justification for type of information:
No studies were located on respiratory sensitisation in humans or animals. However, given the carcinogen properties of cadmium metal and some of the cadmium compounds, risk reduction measures are in place to prevent contact. Therefore, respiratory tract sensitization is not expected to be an issue for human health and further testing is not considered necessary, in accordance with Annex XI (3) of the REACH directive. This is in line with the conclusions of the EU Risk Assessment Report (RAR) (JRC, 2007).
