Chronic toxicity

Imidacloprid did not cause specific target organ toxicity in

experimental animal studies.

Assessment Mutagenicity

Imidacloprid was not mutagenic or genotoxic based on the overall weight of evidence in a

battery of in vitro and in vivo tests.

Assessment Carcinogenicity

Imidacloprid was not carcinogenic in lifetime feeding studies in rats and mice.

Assessment Toxicity to Reproduction

Imidacloprid caused reproduction toxicity in a two-generation study in rats only at dose levels

also toxic to the parent animals. The reproduction toxicity seen with Imidacloprid is related to

parental toxicity.

Assessment developmental toxicity

Imidacloprid caused developmental toxicity only at dose levels toxic to the dams. The

developmental effects seen with Imidacloprid are related to maternal toxicity.

SECTION 13. DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS

Triple or preferably pressure rinse containers before disposal. Dispose of rinsings in a disposal pit

specifically marked and set up for this purpose, clear of waterways, desirable vegetation and tree

Further details on the Occupational Exposure Standards mentioned in Section 8:

CEILING: Ceiling Limit Value

OES BCS: Internal Bayer CropScience "Occupational Exposure Standard"

Australia. OELs. (Adopted National Exposure Standards for Atmospheric Contaminants in the

Occupational Environment)

PEAK: Exposure Standard - Peak means a maximum or peak airborne concentration of a

particular substance determined over the shortest analytically practicable period of time

which does not exceed 15 minutes.

STEL: Exposure standard - short term exposure limit (STEL): A 15 minute TWA exposure which

should not be exceeded at any time during a working day even if the eight-hour TWA

average is within the TWA exposure standard. Exposures at the STEL should not be

longer than 15 minutes and should not be repeated more than four times per day. There

should be at least 60 minutes between successive exposures at the STEL.

SKIN_DES: Skin notation: Absorption through the skin may be a significant source of exposure.

TWA: Exposure standard - time-weighted average (TWA): The average airborne concentration of

a particular substance when calculated over a normal eight-hour working day, for a five-

day working week.

Changes since the last version are highlighted in the margin. This version replaces all previous

versions.
