Additional information - workers

Starting point: NOAEL 250 mg/kg bw/day from a subacute oral study in rats.

Route-to-route extrapolation

For the derivation of the DNELs:

Long-term – dermal, systemic effects

Long-term – inhalation, systemic effects

Route-to-route extrapolation has been performed. In absence of relevant data, only differences between the different routes as determined by the assumed percentages of absorption into the systemic circulation could be accounted for (see toxicokinetic assessment).

Absorption oral (rat) = Absorption oral (human) = 50%

Absorption dermal (human) = 10%

Absorption inhalation (human) = 100%

 

The DNELs for human exposure are derived according to the ECETOC guidance (final draft).

Dermal DNEL

Route-to-route extrapolation:

Dermal NOAEL = oral NOAEL * ABSoral-rat/ABSderm-human = 250 * 50/10 = 1250 mg/kg bw

Safety factors:

-      Interspecies extrapolation: 4

-      Intraspecies extrapolation: 3

-      Exposure duration: 6 (assuming chronic worker exposure)

-      Dose response:1

-      Quality of the data base: 1

Total safety factor: 72

Based on the above, the long-term DNEL for systemic effects after dermal worker exposure is set at 17.4 mg/kg bw/day.

Inhalation DNEL

Route-to-route extrapolation:

Inhalation NOAEL = oral NOAEL * ABSoral-rat/ABSinh-human = 250 * 50/100 = 125 mg/kg bw

Corrected inhalatory NOAEC = 125 * 1/0.38 * 6.7 m3/10 m3= 220 mg/m3

Safety factors:

-      Interspecies extrapolation: 4

-      Intraspecies extrapolation: 3

-      Exposure duration: 6 (assuming chronic worker exposure)

-      Dose response: 1

-      Quality of the data base: 1

Total safety factor: 72

Based on the above, the long-term DNEL for systemic effects after inhalation exposure of the worker, is set at 3.1 mg/m3.

Inhalation DNEL

Route-to-route extrapolation:

Inhalation NOAEL = oral NOAEL * ABSoral-rat/ABSinh-human = 250 * 50/100 = 125 mg/kg bw

Corrected inhalatory NOAEC = 125 * 1/1.15 = 109 mg/m3

Safety factors:
