Description of key information

No data are available for the carcinogenicity of 4,4,13,13-tetraethoxy-3,14-dioxa-8,9-dithia-4,13-disilahexadecane. However, further testing is not considered necessary because:

•       The substance does not have a wide-dispersive use and exposure is expected to be low (see Section 9 for further details);

•       The substance is not classified for mutagenicity; and

•       There is no evidence from the repeated dose studies that the substance is able to induce hyperplasia or pre-neoplastic lesions.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Justification for classification or non-classification

There is no evidence to suggest that the substance should be classified for carcinogenicity.
