Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Skin sensitisation

Link to relevant study records
skin sensitisation: in vitro
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is classified as skin corrosion (Category 1, 1A, 1B or 1C)

Hydrochloric acid does not posses any skin sensitizing potential, both at MEST and GPMT.

For boric acid, an experimental study according to OECD 406 and experience with occupationally exposed workers are available. No evidence of skin sensitisation was obtained.

Interpretation of results:
not sensitising
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: EU
Boron trichloride is not a skin sensitiser.
Executive summary:

Boron trichloride is not a skin sensitiser, which is derived from the degradation category approach applied, by transcribing the results of hydrochloric acid and boric acid to boron trichloride.

The description and justification of the category approach is presented in Section 13.

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no study available

Respiratory sensitisation

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no study available

Justification for classification or non-classification

Due to the corrosive properties of BCl3, no skin sensitisation studies need to be conducted on boron trichloride in accordance with Annev VII, 8.3., column II of the REACH regulation. Therefore no data is available.
