Manganese dichloride (EC: 231-869-6; Cas: 7773-01-5)
Submitted in 2010, with no testing proposals, this substance has not undergone any aspect of the REACH evaluation process to date.
However, because of its solubility and bioavailability, this substance is often the test material choice for most academic studies which end up being published in peer-review literature. The outcome of these publications can change the hazard assessment of the dossier. Hence, Literature review is carried every two years. Furthermore, new information on two reproductive endpoints (two generation reproductive toxicity and pre-natal developmental toxicity) are available from the International Manganese Institute (IMnI) worker safety program. Both studies used MnCl2 as the test material. Therefore, the information from the published literature and from those studies developed by the IMnI will trigger a spontaneous dossier update.
