WoE: not sensitizing

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Skin sensitisation

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no adverse effect observed (not sensitising)
Additional information:

The skin sensitizing properties of the structure of Di-(2-ethylhexyl)adipate were considered by expert judgement, and indications for an alert were considered not present. This was confirmed by using a validated quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR), OASIS-LMC, that predicted both the parent compound and its metabolites as non-sensitiser. Additionally, the available animal studies, a patch test with rabbits and a Draize test with guinea pigs, did not indicate a skin sensitising effect of DEHA (Mallette 1952; CFTA,1967).

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the available data, DEHA is considered to be not sensitising. In accordance with Directive 67/548/EEC and EU Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures (CLP) Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008, classification is not necessary for sensitisation.
