Value:
1 416.82 mg/m³
Most sensitive endpoint:
repeated dose toxicity

AF for other interspecies differences:
1
Justification:
No toxicodynamic differences between species; see justification attached.

1
Justification:
Results were based on key Klimisch 1-2 studies (and possible supporting studies).

2.5
Justification:
For remaining uncertainties that would result from the above assessment factors.

AF for intraspecies differences:
2.4
Justification:
Refined assessment of population differences; see justification attached.
AF for the quality of the whole database:
1
Justification:
Results were based on key Klimisch 1-2 studies (and possible supporting studies).

For remaining uncertainties that would result from the above assessment factors.
Acute/short term exposure
Hazard assessment conclusion:
no hazard identified
DNEL related information

Local effects

Long term exposure
Hazard assessment conclusion:
hazard unknown (no further information necessary)
Acute/short term exposure
Hazard assessment conclusion:
no DNEL required: short term exposure controlled by conditions for long-term

Workers - Hazard for the eyes

Local effects

Hazard assessment conclusion:
medium hazard (no threshold derived)

Additional information - workers

Repeated dose toxicity was tested in various species, including rats, dogs, rabbits and monkeys. The NOAEL of 750 mg/kg bw/day obtained in the key study in rats was confirmed to be consistent with data from docusate sodium and category members in supporting studies in rats; other data from other species were of limited reliability and relevance and therefore not taken into account.
