Applicant's summary and conclusion

Testing of repeated dose dermal toxicity is waived based on the fact that MMVF note Q fibres are inorganic fibres, whose physicochemical properties suggest a low potential to cross biological membranes and consequently a low potential for absorption through the skin. Furthermore, dermal exposure is not a significant exposure route for MMVF note Q fibres. MMVF note Q fibres are assessed not to possess toxic properties by repeated skin contact.
