Materials and methods
This study was conducted to assess the irritancy potential of copper carbonate to the skin of the New Zealand White rabbit. A group of 3 male New Zealand White rabbits were given a single, 4-hour, semi-occluded dermal application of copper carbonate moistened with distilled water to intact skin. Irritancy was determined 1, 24, 48 and 72 hours after the test substance was removed.
The study was conducted according to Commission Directive 92/69/EEC Method B4 Acute Toxicity (Skin Irritation), OECD Guidelines for the Testing of Chemicals No. 404 'Acute Dermal Irritation/Corrosion' (adopted 17 July 1992) and EPA Health Effects Test Guidelines OPPTS 870.2500 Acute Dermal Irritation. August 1998. The study was also conducted according to GLP. No deviations from the test guidelines, or deficiencies in the method were reported.
Results and conclusions
The test material produced a primary irritation index of 0.0 and was classified as NON IRRITANT to rabbit skin according to the Draize classification scheme. No corrosive effects were noted.
