Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
not classified
Remarks:
Migrated informationCriteria used for interpretation of results: EU
Conclusions:
The acute oral median lethal dose (LD50) of the test material in the female Sprague-Dawley CD strain rat was estimated to be greater than 2000 mg/kg bodyweight (Globally Harmonised Classification System Category - Unclassified).The test material was considered to have no significant acute toxic risk if swallowed and did not meet the criteria for classification according to EU labelling regulations Commission Directive 2001/59/EC for classification and labelling of dangerous substances.
Executive summary:

The study was performed to assess the acute oral toxicity of the test material following a single oral administration in the Sprague-Dawley CD strain rat (SPL Standard Test Method 518.04). The method followed the OECD Guidelines for the Testing of Chemicals No 420 "Acute Oral Toxicity - Fixed Dose Method" (adopted l7 December 2001). The acute oral median lethal dose (LD50) of the test material in the female Sprague-Dawley CD strain rat was estimated to be greater than 2000 mg/kg bodyweight (Globally Harmonised Classification System Category - Unclassified)
