Additional information

There are limited but valid data available to evaluate potential effects on skin or eye irritation. In these early studies no effect on skin irritation was observed in 2 rabbits after application to the inner ear. In an eye irritation study no effect on cornea or iris was observed in an early study in two rabbits after 24, 48 and/or 72 hours and only slight effects on conjunctivae and chemosis. All effects were reversible.

Justification for classification or non-classification

C.I. Direct Blue 264 is not irritating to the skin and has only slight effects on the eye. Thus C.I. Direct Blue 264 is considered as "not irritating" according to GHS or DSD.
