Reproductive toxicity refers to adverse effects of a chemical substance/mixture on sexual function and fertility in adult males and females, as well as developmental toxicity in the offspring. Developmental toxicity pertains to adverse toxic effects to the developing embryo or fetus.
There are 3 hazard categories for reproductive toxicity under GHS.
|Category 1A||Known human reproductive toxicants
Based on evidence from humans.
|Category 1B|| Presumed human reproductive toxicants - largely based on animal studies.
|Category 2||Suspected human reproductive toxicant - Evidence from animal and/or human studies is limited
|Effects on via lactation||Effects on via lactation
Toxicants which may interfere with lactation or which may be present in breast milk and may cause harm to breast-fed children
The following studies can provide evidence for GHS classification.
The picture below shows you the concentration limit of a reproductive toxicant triggering the reproductive toxicity classification of a mixture.
Note: Different authorities may have adopted different concentration limits. More info can be found below.
