Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
In conclusion, there is no evidence that the substance is significantly absorbed via the dermal route or the inhalation route. The results of an oral repeated dose toxicity study indicate that the substance may be absorbed orally. It is likely that the following ingestion, the substance undergoes conjugation with glucuronic acid and sulfate within the gastrointestinal tract. Following absorption, the fatty acids are transported to the tissues of the body including the liver where they undergo oxidation in the cells. These solubilised metabolites are then most probably excreted in the urine in conjugated form. Consequently, the substance is considered to have low bioaccumulation potential.
