Skin sensitisation

The test substance was evaluated for its potential to induced skin sensitization in a test protocol conducted according to the OECD Guideline 406 (Skin Sensitization) in Dunkin-Hartley guinea pig. The Buehler test using 5 animals per sex per dose group was conducted with test substance (TS purity 98.3%) concentrations levels in doubly distilled water of 10% (v/v) for induction, and 5.0% (v/v) at challenge (the minimal irritating concentration for induction and the maximal non irritating concentration for challenge were determined in a range-finding study with concentration levels of 1.0, 5.0, 10 and 25%). The test substance was applied epicutaneously (occlusive patch) on days 0, 7 and 14 (0.5 ml; the control group received the vehicle only) for induction, and on day 29 for challenge. Skin reactions were read at 24 and 48 after application of the solutions, and the number of animals with skin findings after the removal of the patch was taken into account for the determination of the sensitization rate. 60% (12/20; 0% in the negative control group) of test animals showed positive reactions 24 hours after challenge and 80% 48 hours thereafter (16/20; 0% in the negative control group). The test substance has therefore to be considered sensitising to the guinea pig skin.

No data available

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the available skin sensitisation study, the substance has to be classified as sensitising according to Annex VI of the EU directive 67/548/EEC (R43) and to the EU Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (Cat 1A).
