  1. CMI/MI = mixture of 5-chloro-2-methyl-2H-isothiazolin-3-one and 2-methyl-2H-isothiazolin-3-one
  2. 1 = value is an aggregate value of different scenarios (max 24 of 50) compared to respective NOAEL (inhalativ, dermal, oral)
  3. 2 = each scenario is limited to maximal amount used and then all scenarios are summed up. After that the value has been compared to the oral NOAEL
