- An up to date acute oral toxicity study is available that reports no toxicity at the maximum dose of 2000 mg/kg bw.- No studies on dermal toxicity are available.- A set of non-standard studies with single inhalation exposure are available, but not suitable for setting a LC50.- Only airborne exposures to soluble beryllium compounds are associated with acute beryllium disease. Exposure to beryllium metal has not been found to be associated with acute or short-term respiratory reactions. Eisenbud M. The Standard for Control of Chronic Beryllium Disease. Appl Occup Environ Hyg 13(1): 25–31 (1998).
- oral toxicity: Be metal is non-toxic via the oral route and does not
need to be classified for acute oral toxicity according to CLP
(REGULATION (EC) No 1272/2008 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE
COUNCIL) as implementation
of UN-GHS in the EU.
- dermal toxicity: The dermal toxicity Be metal cannot be assessed as no
reliable study is available. Given the absence of oral toxicity a
classification for acute dermal toxicity is deemed unjustified according
to CLP (REGULATION (EC) No 1272/2008 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF
THE COUNCIL) as implementation of UN-GHS in the EU.
- inhalation toxicity: Beryllium metal is non-toxic via the inhalation
route and does not need to be classified for acute oral toxicity
according to CLP (REGULATION (EC) No 1272/2008 OF THE EUROPEAN
PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL)
