Description of key information

The test item is not considered to be irritating to the skin or eyes. A study for respiratory irritation is not available; however, an acute inhalation study ( Haferkorn, 2008) does not give any indication that the test substance should be regarded as a respiratory irritant. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Skin irritation / corrosion

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no adverse effect observed (not irritating)

Eye irritation

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no adverse effect observed (not irritating)

Respiratory irritation

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no adverse effect observed (not irritating)

Additional information

The key studies (recently performed according to current guidelines and GLP) did result in very slight skin and slight eye irritation; these slight irritation effects do not require classification. Supporting studies show signs of slight to moderate irritation but do not justify classification.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Key studies with the test substance showed only slight signs of irritation. Therefore classification for irritation/corrosion is not warranted.
