Additional information

Based on data from category members and supported by reliable QSARs plus limited data on the subtance itself, this substance is expected to produce negative results from standard genotoxicity/mutagenicity assays. Note that further testing is underway on this substance to provide additional data to support this conclusion.

Justification for classification or non-classification

From the available data, there is no indication of the substance having genotoxic or mutagenic properties, therefore classification is not warranted.
