In a first step, the starting point oral value should be corrected forroute-to-route extrapolation. In accordance with REACH guidance document R.8 (‘Characterization of dose (concentration)-response for human health’), in the absence of data, no default factor (i.e. factor of 1) should be introduced for oral-to-dermal extrapolation, basedon the assumption that dermal absorption will in general not be higher than oral absorption.However, for highly lipophilic substances (log Kow > 4), according toSection R.7.12.2.1 of REACH guidance document R7.C (May 2008), a 10% default dermal absorption percentage value is recommended (in the absence of test data) for the purpose of risk assessment.Therefore a factor of 9.6 (ABSoral/ABSdermal= 96/10) can be used to correct the starting dose for absorption difference between routes.

The next steps consist in applying assessment factors (AF) for interpecies difference, intraspecies variation, exposure duration, dose-response and quality of the database, as presented in Section R.8.4.3 of REACH guidance document R.8. The overall AF in this case corresponds to 50.

The resulting DNELlong-term, workers, dermal is equivalent to 1,776 mg /kg bw/day.

For consumers, asimilar procedure is applied as for the derivation of worker DNELs. The only difference is that the assessment factor for intraspecies variation is 10 instead of 5 in this case, according to Section R.8.4.3 of REACH guidance document R.8. The overall AF therefore corresponds to 100.

The resulting DNELlong-term, consumers, dermal is equivalent to 888 mg /kg bw/day.
