Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
alpha-Pinene multiconstituent does not need classification as eye irritant or serious eye damage according to Regulation (EC) n° 1272/2008 and UN GHS.
Executive summary:

In a GLP study conducted according to the OECD 492 guideline the irritant potential of alpha-pinene multiconstituent was evaluated. The method is based on viability of Reconstructed Human Cornea-like Epithelium (RhCE) when exposed to the test substance. The mean percent tissue viability of the RhCE replicates treated with test item alpha-pinene multiconstituent was 80.39% versus 31.99% in the positive control (Methyl acetate). In conclusion, in accordance with Regulation (EC) n° 1272/2008 and UN GHS, the test item does not require classification as eye irritant or serious eye damage. No hazard statement or signal word is required.
