Dear DCHAS Listserv members:

The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has a document with rather extensive content about “STOT SE” (Specific Target Organ Toxicity, Single Exposure) and “STOT RE” (Specific Target Organ Toxicity, Repeated Exposure). If interested, please see:

Subject: [DCHAS-L] SDS acronym | STOT


Valued colleagues:

I’m reading several SDS from our vendor (Chemwatch) and finding the acronym/initialism: STOT.

Most reasonable definition I’ve been able to find is Specific Target Organ Toxicity.

Is that correct? Is this a new abbreviation? A very old one?
