Test system

Type of coverage:
semiocclusive
Preparation of test site:
clipped
Vehicle:
water
Controls:
not required
Amount / concentration applied:
500 mg
Duration of treatment / exposure:
4 h
Observation period:
72 h
Number of animals:
3
Details on study design:
- Preparation of exposure area
at least the day before application of the test item, the back and the flanks of the rabbits were carefully clipped. At the time of application, only the animals showing a healthy intact skin, with no evidence of macroscopic irritation were used in the study.

-Method of administration
The test item was applied under a semi-occlusive dressing composed of a gauze pad approx. 2.5 cm x 2.5 cm, maintained in contsct with the skin with a perforated tape. This tape was applied on a crimped gauze bandage which fully covered the clipped area to avoid possible irritation reactions and was wrapped around the animal without blocking the respiratory and abdominal movements.
The powder was moistened with water for injection to obtain a homogeneous paste.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
not irritating
Remarks:
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: EU
Conclusions:
With reference the reported scores and the full reversibility of effects within 48 h the test item does not have to be classified as irritant to the skin according to the criteria laid down in the EU Classification Labelling and Packaging Regulation (1272/2008/EC).
Executive summary:

N,N’-Bis(2,2,6,6-tetramethyl-4-piperidinyl)isophthalamide was tested for its skin irritant properties in 3 New Zealand White rabbits. The study was performed according to OECD Guideline 404.

With reference the reported scores and the full reversibility of effects within 48 h the test item does not have to be classified as irritant to the skin according to the criteria laid down in the EU Classification Labelling and Packaging Regulation (1272/2008/EC).
