Description of key information

Expert Judgement 
Due to the absence of chemical groups or other structural alerts this substance is not considered to exhibit an high hazard potential.
Sodium isobutyl xanthate is of low priority for further work based on a low hazard potential.
The manufacture, transport and current end-use of Sodium isobutyl xanthate is not considered to pose a significant risk to the livestock and pets provided that precautions are taken to ensure that the amounts of Sodium isobutyl xanthate released into tailings dams do not give rise to levels of hazardous degradation products and that emergency procedures for the containment and clean up of accidental spills are made available and followed.

Therefore testing for Toxic effects on livestock and pets does not need to be performed.
