CAS Number: 79-06-1
Chemical Name: Acrylamide
Type of Toxicity: cancer
Listing Mechanism: Authoritative Bodies (AB)
Date Listed: 1-Jan-90
NSRL (No Significant Risk Level) or MADL (Maximum Allowable Dose Level): 0.2 µg/day
Where a source or product results in exposures by multiple routes, the total exposure must be considered. For example, the MADL for benzene is exceeded when the absorbed dose exceeds 24 µg/day. If only inhalation and oral exposure occurs, the benzene MADL is exceeded when: (oral dose ÷ 24 µg/day) + (inhalation dose ÷ 49 µg/day) > 1.0.
