Skin sensitisation

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no adverse effect observed (not sensitising)
Additional information:
No animal data are available and the study cannot be conducted because the substance is a strong acid (pH<2.0). Since 1990, a mean value of 53 workers/year have been exposed to the substance in main production site in Burgos, Spain, with an overall production since 1990 that can be evaluated to 898132 tonnes. No cases of skin sensitisation have been recorded by occupational medicine. The substance can therefore be considered as non sensitising.
